“We look forward to National Night Out every year as an opportunity to build stronger relationships between the community, public safety, and other City departments,” Community Services Director John Alita said. “It is one of the best ways to build safer, more resilient neighborhoods while enjoying an evening that is educational and fun for the whole family.”
National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by the Stockton Police Department. This annual event is recognized nationally as an opportunity to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhoods, and build police-community partnerships.
