    On Tuesday, August 7, 2018, the Santa Monica community is invited to join Chief Renaud, the members of the Santa Monica Police Department and thousands of communities nationwide to celebrate 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 to celebrate the exceptional relationship our police and community share together. The Department continues to work to build a safe place to live, work, and visit through a strong neighborhood spirit and active community involvement among neighbors, community groups, businesses, and youth organizations. This event celebrates these efforts and is designed to generate continued support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts.

    Our event will be held in front of City Hall from 5:30-8pm. Along with getting a close-up look at our various police vehicles and equipment, meet police personnel and enjoy live music, local dancers, free food (for the first 1,000 attendees), and family-friendly activities including two community art projects. Sustainable transportation options are encouraged. Free parking will be available in the Civic Center Parking Structure (333 Civic Center Drive) located directly across the street from the Public Safety Building for event participants only.

    Some of the sponsors of this year's event include the Santa Monica Police Officers' Association, Starbucks, Chick-fil-a, Snapchat, Boston Properties, Pacific Park, and AT&T.
