The Ventura Police Department Encourages Residents to Participate
in National Night Out on Tuesday, August 3, 2021
Ventura, California – Ventura neighborhoods are invited to participate in National Night Out, on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 from 4 p.m.- 8 p.m. This is an opportunity to engage in relationship building with Ventura Police Officers and elected officials.
National Night Out is an annual crime prevention event and community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie that make our neighborhoods safer all year round.
“National Night Out is a great opportunity for residents to turn on their porch lights and opt outside for an evening of activities,” said Chief Darin Schindler. “Community policing is more critical than ever before. It’s important for our residents and students to engage with our team in a positive environment and know that we are truly here to serve them and keep them safe.”
From small potlucks and front yard chats to larger block parties, chalk drawing contests, and ice cream socials, neighborhoods are urged to connect with neighbors, be creative, and have fun!
Registration is free and gives Ventura Police Officers and city representatives an opportunity to attend local neighborhood events as time and circumstances permits.
The City of Ventura is committed to maintaining the health and safety of all Ventura residents and will be closely following public health and safety guidance for outdoor events.
