National Night Out

Round up the neighbors and start making plans for this year’s National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 6. Last year, National Night Out festivities broke a record with 54 neighborhoods participating in the evening’s festivities. Organizers hope to smash another record this year.

The activities will begin with a special Public Safety Open House and kick-off event in the Civic Building Atrium from 4 to 6 p.m. where residents can get an “up-close-and-personal” look at police cars, fire trucks and Pierce County Sheriff’s office special unit displays. There will also be other safety providers there to share information and answer questions.

At 6 p.m., public safety personnel, City Council members and City staff will head out in patrol cars, fire engines and medic units to neighborhoods that pre-registered for a visit to their NNO festivities. Whether your neighborhood hosts a cookout, potluck picnic, softball game or casual gathering, National Night Out will be a great opportunity for residents to meet—or become reacquainted with—U.P.’s new Police Chief Greg Premo, who previously served as an administrative sergeant and patrol officer in University Place.

Given the growing popularity of this event, if you want your neighborhood to be included on the caravan schedule you must pre-register by calling 253.798.3141 by July 26. Neighborhoods are asked to host their events from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The City Caravan cannot take specific requests to be at a neighborhood party at any certain time, but every effort is made to get to all registered events by 8 p.m.
