Every year at this time, millions of Americans across the country gather in their neighborhoods to promote police-community partnerships. By coming out with neighbors and talking with local police and fire responders, we make our communities stronger and safer. We build a true sense of community.
Here's a list of locations of the neighborhood gatherings in West Contra Costa County for the annual National Night Out this Tuesday, August 7.
Most events start at around 5PM or 6PM and go through 8PM or 9PM. Find a location near you and go outside and meet your neighbors and local public safety responders. You'll be making your community better!
KEY NATIONAL NIGHT OUT LOCATIONS:
The party kicks off in the Target parking lot at 4500 Macdonald Avenue at 5
