National Night Out
Turn your porch lights on, come outside and take a stand against crime with your neighbors.
Please check back for updates about the City's next National Night Out event!
National Night Out (NNO) is a nationwide campaign meant to enhance relationships between communities and first responders while promoting crime prevention, community building and police-community partnerships. National Night Out provides families with the unique and exciting opportunity to interact with our law enforcement and fire service professionals in a way that is fun, positive, and vastly rewarding. Kirkland residents are encouraged to get together with neighbors and friends to plan neighborhood events, or to stop by the Kirkland Justice Center to celebrate NNO with a free barbecue!
Neighborhood groups can register their event with the City by filling out the National Night Out Block Party Permit Application PDF. The application is only needed for events that require a road closure. Block party fees will be waived for National Night Out events held on National Night Out's designated day. Members of the City Council and first responders from the Kirkland Police and Fire Departments attend community events between 6 and 9 p.m. To coordinate first responder attendance at an event requiring a road closure, contact Special Projects Coordinator Sudie Elkayssi at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For block parties held on private property no application is needed. If you would like attendance from first responders at a block party held on private property, contact Neighborhood Resource Officer Deana Lansing at email@example.com for police presence, and Teri Wallace at: firstname.lastname@example.org for fire presence.
The availability of the City's first responders is contingent on call volume.
