National Night Out
National Night Out 2021 will be Tuesday, August 3
National Night OutSince 2009, the Turlock Police Department has joined forces with thousands of other communities and law enforcement agencies across the nation to support this community-building campaign. This event is always scheduled for the first Tuesday in August, so be sure to mark your calendars every year and follow us on social media for updates! The goal of this event is to create a safer community for everyone by strengthening neighborhood spirit and building partnerships. From 6:00pm - 9:00pm, neighbors throughout the nation are encouraged to turn on outside lights and spend the evening outdoors.
Individual homes, neighborhoods and apartments can register their locations for the opportunity to receive a visit from Turlock Police, Fire, City officials, McGruff and other mascots. If available, coordinators will receive enough water, food, chips and supplies to host their Night Out. Citizens, businesses and non-profits can also get involved by participating in the fundraising events and activities leading up to National Night Out.
We hope you join us for a Night Out to celebrate National Night Out!*
