Night Out gatherings will focus on neighborhood awareness Aug. 4

The national “Night Out” Crime Prevention event gets underway on the evening of Aug 4 and is always popular in West Seattle.

It is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite our communities. It is a great chance to learn about crime prevention, while also celebrating your community and spending time with your neighbors.

Night Out in Seattle
Seattle has had a long history of supporting Night Out. The program has been growing every year, with over 1,400 neighborhoods participating each year. This type of community participation is what makes Seattle a great place to live.

The event is a unique opportunity to bring your neighbors together, welcome new neighbors, talk about crime prevention and Block Watch efforts, and mainly just have a great time with food, music, games - whatever you want. The creativity we've seen of what neighborhoods come up with is amazing. Some gatherings are just a few households; others expand into large block parties.
