The City of Dublin annually participates in the National Night Out campaign, which is designed to promote civic pride and unity among neighbors who share an anti-drug and anti-crime stance.
National Night Out was introduced by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) in 1984 and began as a concept for generating greater crime prevention involvement among residents. What started with residents simply leaving their porch lights on soon progressed to something bigger: neighbors organizing cookouts, parades, contests, neighborhood walks, festivals, rallies, and community service events, such as a park clean-up. Today, more than 35 million people and over 15,000 communities participate in National Night Out!
Last year, due to COVID-19, Dublin Police Services hosted a virtual National Night Out. We are excited that National Night Out will return to the Dublin community on Tuesday, be held on August 3, 2021. Those who have registered their events with Dublin Police will receive a visit from Dublin Police, Alameda County Fire, and/or Dublin City officials.
