Host a Block Party on National Night Out
Submitted By Fremont PD
Fremont residents are preparing for the 28th annual National Night Out event. National Night Out 2011 is an annual nationwide event designed to strengthen neighborhood spirit and unity, raise crime prevention awareness, and develop partnerships between the City and the community-on a street, block and city-wide level. The city-wide celebration will include Neighborhood Crime Watch groups, CERT members, homeowners associations, and other neighborhood groups interested in celebrating and strengthening their neighborhood connections.
If your neighborhood is planning to participate, be sure to register your National Night event with the Fremont Police Department. In past years, Fremont residents have hosted over 100 parties in neighborhoods all over Fremont. Due to budgetary constraints, we will not be able to guarantee a visit to every party as we have in past years. A lottery system will be used to choose the parties that receive a visit. In order to participate in the lottery system, it is essential that you register your party. National Night Out is really about neighborhood unity and building relationships with your neighbors.
Residents can register their event at www.fremontpolice.org or by calling the Community Engagement message line at (510) 790-6740. The deadline to register to be considered for a visit by Police and Fire is Monday, July 25 at 5 p.m.
