National Night Out to promote public safety
Police and emergency services to host event in City Park August 2
–On Tuesday, May 3 the Paso Robles City Council voted to add a National Night Out to the city events calendar. The event will be hosted by the Paso Robles Police Department and Emergency Services in City Park on Aug. 2.
National Night Out is a free event open to the public promoting public safety, community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Educational information, Police and Emergency Services demonstrations, and vehicle displays are planned from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The event was first held in Paso Robles in 2014 on Park Street in front of the Public Safety Center. The ongoing plan for National Night Out is to build the popularity of the event and in future years move it to Paso Robles neighborhoods where more residents can participate. The long-term plan is for individual neighborhoods to host their own national night out, as a way to better assist neighborhoods seeking to augment their protection levels. No funding was requested for the event.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
