nnoNational Night Out is on August 4th
Burlingame joins communities nationwide

On Tuesday, August 4, 2015, neighborhoods throughout Burlingame are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the Annual National Night Out (NNO) crime and drug prevention event.


National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Burlingame Police Department, will involve over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 36 million people are expected to participate in "America's Night Out Against Crime". National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for local anticrime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.


On August 4, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., residents in neighborhoods throughout Burlingame are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outdoors with neighbors and police. Neighbors are encouraged to host special events such as block parties, cookouts, ice cream socials or neighborhood gatherings. Members of the Burlingame Police Department will be on Burlingame Avenue and Park Road handling out crime prevention and personal safety material to the public.


Police Chief Eric Wollman would like to remind everyone that NNO is a night for America to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. NNO showcases the vital importance of police community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight to build a safer nation. If you would like an officer to visit your block party on that night, please contact Officer Chris Zwingle at (650) 777-4100 or by email at
