National Night Out Returns to City Hall - August 2, 2022

July 25, 2022 9:56 AM

On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, the Santa Monica community is invited to join Police Chief Ramon Batista, the members of the Santa Monica Police Department along with other city divisions, plus thousands of communities nationwide to celebrate National Night Out (NNO). NNO is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie aimed at  making our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. NNO enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Millions of neighbors take part in NNO across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide every year on the first Tuesday in August. We anticipate approximately 1,000 community members and stakeholders will be in attendance at the Santa Monica event held in front of City Hall (1685 Main Street).

SMPD’s theme this year is “Behind the Badge” which includes multiple opportunities to get to know the men and women that serve this beautiful city. Be it hanging out with our car buffs and the vintage police car, or playing soccer with some of our officers that serve double duty as coaches on their days off, there is something for everyone!

Along with showcasing our various police vehicles and equipment, meet police personnel, human and 4-legged alike, and enjoy music, food, and family-friendly activities including lawn games, an inflatable obstacle course, photo ops, and much more. While sustainable transportation options are encouraged, free parking will be available in the Civic Center Parking Structure located directly across the street from the Public Safety Building at 330 Olympic Drive.

Some of this year’s sponsors include the Santa Monica Police Officers’ Association, 7-11, Shasta, Boston Properties, Harmony Mediation Partners, LLC and the Santa Monica Fire Firefighters, Local #1109.
