Question: What is National Night Out? 

Answer: Kate McLaughlin, Community Policing Specialist 

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August. Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.

Euclid Police Department will celebrate National Night Out on Tuesday, August 1st, 5-8 p.m. at the East 276th Street and Sidney Drive Playground.  All residents from the City of Euclid are encouraged to join us for a free hot dog dinner, music, inflatables, and other activities compliments of Euclid Apartments.   Make plans to attend National Night Out on Tuesday, August 1st with the Euclid Police Department.  For more information contact Community Policing at 216-289-8449.
