On Tuesday, August 4, the Santa Monica community is invited to join forces with Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks, members of the Santa Monica Police Department and thousands of communities nationwide to celebrate the 32nd National Night Out. This police-community partnership event involves over 16,500 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world.

National Night Out is an opportunity for the Santa Monica Police Department and the community to celebrate the exceptional relationship we share. The City of Santa Monica continues to be a safe place to live, work, and visit because of its strong neighborhood spirit and active community involvement among neighbors, community groups, businesses, and youth organizations.

The event will be held in the Santa Monica Civic Center parking lot from 6 – 8 p.m. Along with showcasing various police vehicles and equipment, attendees are invited to meet police personnel and enjoy live music, raffles, free food, and family-friendly activities including a rock climbing wall, bicycle safety demonstrations, and more. Sustainable transportation options are encouraged. Walk, ride your bike or get a free roundtrip ride on the Big Blue Bus. Parking will be available in the Civic Center Parking Structure located directly across the street from the Public Safety Building.

Some of the sponsors of this year’s event include the Santa Monica Police Officers’ Association, The Art Institute of Santa Monica, Pacific Park, and Big Blue Bus.
