National Night Out

National Night Out LogoJoin over 38 million neighbors across more than 16 thousand communities around the nation for National Night Out, an annual community building campaign that promotes police/community partnerships and neighborhood spirit to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.


You are invited to participate virtually through Facebook with your neighbors throughout San José in celebration of National Night Out on
Tuesday, October 6th, 2020 at 6:30 PM!

National Night Out is a crime prevention event that is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the San Jose Police Department.


National Night Out

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships
  • Heighten crime prevention awareness
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local crime prevention efforts
  • Build connections within the community and get to know your neighbors

On Tuesday, October 6th, 2020, neighborhoods participating in National Night Out throughout San José are asked to join in a virtual city-wide effort to strengthen their community by logging on Facebook and taking part in the virtual festivities from the comfort of their own homes. Light up your street by turning on outside lights and spending the evening online with your community and local police department.  
Join us for an evening full of crime prevention tips, community member messages, music, giveaways, and fun! 
For questions or event information contact the Crime Prevention Unit at (408) 277-4133.
