National Night Out: August 6, 2013 (Milpitas, August 8)

Last year, 140 National Night Out celebrations took place in neighborhoods throughout Fremont. This year, let's work together to increase that number to 150.

Join the celebration by hosting a block party, ice cream social or other fun event with your neighbors on Aug. 6, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. National Night Out is a night to get to know your neighbors in a safe and friendly environment and a way to heighten crime prevention awareness.

Registration runs from June 17 to July 26 online at or by calling (510) 790-6740. Information packets will be mailed, if requested, once your registration is received. For more information, call the Fremont Police Department's Community Engagement Unit at (510) 790-6740.

Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils (residents show their support by leaving their porch lights on between 7:00 - 10:00 pm), our city celebrates NNO with neighborhood Block Parties. NNO begins at 6:00 pm with members from the Hayward Police Department and City Officials visiting each Block Party registered to participate. Visit for more details.

Milpitas will hold NNO activities on Thursday, August 8. The Milpitas Police Department, in collaboration with the Milpitas Community Advisory Commission, encourages residents to host neighborhood parties on Thursday, August 8th, 2013 to celebrate the 30th Annual National Night Out. The event will take place between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Milpitas residents interested in hosting a National Night Out Neighborhood party, or to obtain information should contact Officer Waqar Qureshi at (408)586-2529/; Gene Smith at (408)586-2527/ or Officer Mitch Timko at
