National Night Out

Heart of the City

August 1, 2019

National Night Out

On Tuesday, August 6, 2019, the Santa Monica community is invited to join Chief Renaud, the members of the Santa Monica Police Department and thousands of communities nationwide to celebrate National Night Out. This police-community partnership event involves over 16,500 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world gathering together one night.


National Night Out is an opportunity for the Santa Monica Police Department to celebrate the exceptional relationship our police and community share together. The City of Santa Monica continues to thrive because of its strong neighborhood spirit and active community involvement among neighbors, community groups, businesses, and youth organizations.  This event celebrates these efforts and is designed to serve as a reminder to all of the joint power in working together.


Our event, themed Heart of the City, will be held in front City Hall, 1685 Main Street from 530-8pm. Along with showcasing our various police vehicles and equipment, meet police personnel, human and 4-legged alike, and enjoy music, community art, free food, and family-friendly activities including a photobooth, giant lawn games, Lego heart exchange, Santa Monica Rocks decorating, e-scooter safety demonstrations, and much more. While sustainable transportation options are encouraged, validated parking will be available in the Civic Center Parking Structure located directly across the street from the Public Safety Building.


Some of the sponsors of this year’s event include the Santa Monica Police Officers’ Association, 7-11, Pacific Park, and the Huntley Hotel.
