San Ramon police, neighborhoods to recognize National Night Out

Communities to gather for 'America's Night Out Against Crime'

San Ramon police and neighborhoods throughout the city are joining forces to participate in the 31st Annual National Night Out on Aug. 5.

Sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and locally co-sponsored by the San Ramon Police Department and Neighborhood Watch Group, National Night Out gathers communities nationwide for the cause of drug- and crime-prevention.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug awareness, generate community support and participation in Neighborhood Watch programs, foster neighborhood spirit, and strengthen police and community relations.

Between 5:30-9 p.m. on Aug. 5, residents are encouraged to lock their doors, step outside, and spend the evening outdoors on their porches and lawns with neighbors and police officers.

Several neighborhood watch groups are coordinating potlucks, block parties, ice cream socials and other special events for the night.

To register a neighborhood group for the event, contact Darlene Kittredge at 973-2720 or
