National Night Out August 2

 

National Night Out, held annually since 1984, is a community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. Neighbors participate across thousands of communities from all 50 states, United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. National Project Coordinator Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for America to stand together and promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement. When law enforcement and the community work closely together, some amazing things can happen.”

 

Below are local National Night Out events being held Tuesday, August 2:

 

Martinez

Martinez residents are invited to meet their neighbors and some of Martinez’s finest as part of National Night Out at the Alhambra Christmas Tree Farm at 2647 Reliez Valley Road from 6-9pm.
