– The Kirkland Police Department looks forward to Kirkland neighborhoods participating in the 33rd annual National Night Out
Against Crime on Tuesday August 2, 2016. “National Night Out” is a nationwide campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to promote safety and awareness in the community. Activities that neighborhoods may want to host include cookouts, flashlight walks, or contests. We encourage neighborhoods to register
their events with the City of Kirkland so that the Kirkland Police and Fire Departments can visit community events between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Block party fees will be waived for National Night Out events held on August 2, 2016.
“National Night Out gives us a chance to get out into the neighborhoods to connect with our most valuable resource, the people of Kirkland,” said Kirkland Police Chief Cherie Harris. “Neighbors are the first line of defense in ensuring that our community is safe. Their eyes and ears keep us aware of any problems including crime and drug activity. That’s why we welcome participation from every neighborhood and look forward to this important community event.”
To show support for National Night Out, Kirkland residents are encouraged to get with neighbors and friends, turn your porch lights on, and come outside to take a stand against crime and build relationships with your neighbors and police.
