On August 3, 2021, the Berkeley Police, Fire, and other City services will join the community in celebrating the 35th Annual National Night Out​.

National Night Out is part of a nationwide effort to help communities build relationships with their local public safety department and raise awareness about crime prevention.  In general, neighborhoods participate in National Night Out by turning on their lights and having porch or street side conversations-strengthening neighborhood bonds.

National Night Out attendees will have the opportunity to connect with their neighbors and network with city employees. Neighborhood Watch groups, community partners, and religious institutions have organized a number of neighborhood events-including block parties, cookouts, barbeques, and ice cream socials.

We have a number of groups registered to participate in this year's event.

For more information about National Night Out, please check out their website as well-https://natw.org/.
