San Diego Police Department’s Northeastern Division hosted its 5th Annual National Night Out on Aug. 1, drawing over 400 residents to the Rancho Peñasquitos headquarters. The event — held in conjunction with the 34th Annual National Night Out — is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. Family-friendly festivities included children’s activities, child fingerprinting and photos, entertainment, blood donations, safety information, refreshments, and members of the SDPD, SWAT, and K-9 teams in attendance.
