Police and Emergency Services host third annual National Night Out
Event held in Downtown City Park
–On Tuesday, August 2, Paso Robles joined communities nationwide for the 33rd annual “National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event.
National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, involved over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. National Night Out is an event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners.
This marked the 3rd year Paso Robles has celebrated National Night Out and, due to increased attendance, the event was moved to City Park with great success. Members of the community were able to meet their local police, fire and ambulance personnel, get a first-hand look at first responder vehicles and equipment and watch police K-9 demonstrations. There were activities for children such as learning how to take their own fingerprints, how to call 9-1-1, and educational information about drug awareness and prevention. Complimentary hot dogs, hamburgers, cake and ice cream were provided as well.
