Neighborhood Night Out

The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) Northeastern Division recently hosted their 3rd Annual National Night Out, a community-wide event to celebrate neighborhood spirit, strengthen ties between SDPD and citizens, and heighten awareness of crime and drug prevention. SDPD, SWAT, SDPD K9, and a number of other departments joined together to set up booths with kids’ activities, child fingerprinting and photos, entertainment, snacks, and safety information. San Diego Fire Rescue provided CPR and AED demonstrations. McGruff the Crime Dog also made an appearance. Beyond the SDPD National Night Out festival, citizens across the country were encouraged to lock their doors, turn on their porch lights, and spend the evening with neighbors and first responders. This year was the 32nd anniversary of National Night Out – learn more at www.natw.org.
