Reminder: Neighborhood Night Out is Aug. 1
Night Out is a national event promoted in Seattle by Seattle Police Department Crime Prevention. It is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite our communities. This year’s event is on Tuesday, August 1.
To participate in Night Out and to have your street closed for the event, you must officially register your Night Out event with the City of Seattle. You can close a street as long as you don’t close an intersection, or live on an arterial. There is no fee.
Registration is open until 5 p.m. on Monday, July 31, so there’s still time to get your event listed; you can register here. A map of events is linked here, just select “Southwest Precinct” or your specific neighborhood; numerous events are scheduled throughout West Seattle, Ballard and South Park. Here’s a link to the information page, which includes advice on how to organize a Night Out event on your street, and materials in several languages.
