National Night Out

Watsonville to Celebrate National Night Out Tuesday, October 4, 2022


NNO2018Every year, millions of neighbors participate in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, and military bases worldwide.

This annual community-building campaign promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Together, we are making that happen. It also provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Most communities across the nation celebrate National Night Out by hosting block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts, and other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits, and more. Watsonville police officers, firefighters, city council members, and commissioners will be invited to attend your event.

National Night Out will take place on Tuesday, October 4, 2022, starting at 4 p.m. in neighborhoods throughout Watsonville.

The City of Watsonville's official National Night Out site will be held at the Gene Hoularis & Waldo Rodriguez Youth Center (30 Maple Ave) from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

National Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for our nation 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.
