Roseville neighborhoods are invited to participate with many other neighborhoods across the country in celebration of National Night Out on Tuesday evening, August 4th, 2015.  National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event that is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Roseville Police Department.

National Night Out is designed to:

Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime prevention efforts
Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships
Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

Participating neighborhoods nationwide are asked to turn on outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.  Neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of events, ranging from small potlucks and BBQ's to large block parties.  Some additional event ideas include, but are not limited to, ice cream socials, games, contests, discussing neighborhood issues or setting neighborhood goals, food or clothing donations, planning a clean-up day, beautifying a common area, or discussing or planning a Neighborhood Watch Program.  Residents are encouraged to be creative, have fun and CELEBRATE THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS!  For additional ideas or questions, contact the Roseville Police Department Community Services  Unit at pdcommunityservices@roseville.ca.us.

Registration is free and gives police and other city representatives an opportunity to attend local events as time and circumstances permit.  The registration form is available on the City's website at www.roseville.ca.us.
