At a recent Community Public Safety Breakfast, Yucaipa Police Lt. Robert Warrick said “On Aug. 3, we are going to be doing National Night Out (NNO) at the Community Park.” This event is free to the public and all are invited. Various activities, information, presentations and demonstrations offered during NNO, help show how we can all work together for a safer community.
National Night Out is an annual community building campaign that promotes police community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer and more caring places to live. Citizens, law enforcement agencies, community groups, businesses, organizations, neighbors and local, state and federal officials join forces to celebrate Yucaipa’s annual National Night Out. This event brings citizens and law enforcement together so that trust and relationships can be built to help keep our community safe.
The Sheriff’s Department, the Fire Department, CHP (California Highway Patrol) will be at the park from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. with activities for the children and informational opportunities for the community to talk with Explorers to find out what volunteers do on a daily basis. Citizens on Patrol will be available for the public to talk to find out what they actually do also.
“We’re going to do our best to have our mounted posse there so there will be some horses. It is just a good opportunity similar to the Commun-ity Public Safety Breakfast, except it is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for people to come out, shake hands, exchange business cards and talk about how we serve the community,” said Warrick.
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide. This is the 38th year for National Night Out. With 375 cities in California participating, this community gathering and informational exchange is an opportunity the family will be glad it attended. A great opportunity to see what is going on in Yucaipa, to ask questions about the different programs and find out how you or your family can be more involved.
The Yucaipa Community Park is located at 34900 Oak Glen Road.
