National Night Out

National Night Out Returns August 2, 2022!    

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!

We are excited to meet with residents during this year's National Night Out event on August 2, 2022.  Those who registered their events with Dublin Police will receive a visit from Dublin Police, Alameda County Fire, and/or Dublin City officials.

While it is too late to register your gathering to receive a visit from public safety personnel, it is not too late to organize a get-together with your neighbors to enjoy the camaraderie and to create a sense of community and belonging in your neighborhood.
