We’re Not Going To Take It — Anymore!

Send Criminals A Message

On August 5 neighborhoods throughout Sacramento are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “25th Annual National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event.

From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., residents throughout the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Many neighborhoods throughout Sacramento will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, ice cream socials, bike rodeos, parades, visits from the police and dignitaries, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and anti-crime rallies.
