National Night out Draws Crowds


August 3, 2017

This event has been held annually since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada. National Night Out began simply with neighbors turning on their porch lights and sitting in front of their homes. From the first National Night Out involved 2.5 million residents across 400 communities in 23 states, National Night Out has grown to include more than thirty-eight million residents in twenty-thousand communities across the USA, including Culver City as of 2016.[4]Cedars-Sinai, Rotary Club, Target, Santa Maria BBQ, Costco, Westfield Mall, JC Penney, Ring and the Killer Pumpkins were sponsors of the Culver City event where throngs of residents and their children came to visit, eat, enjoy the entertainment and see the emergency vehicles. The event is meant to increase awareness about police programs in communities, such as drug prevention, town watch, neighborhood watch, and other anti-crimeefforts. Top brass from the CCPD and CCFD along with other agencies and rank and file officers were on hand to greet the public. Culver City’s Mayor along with council members and other local officials joined in the festival.
