Join Us at the Santa Monica National Night Out. Tuesday, August 1

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.

Santa Monica community members are invited to join forces with the members of the Santa Monica Police Department and communities nationwide to celebrate National Night Out. This special event will take place at two parks in Santa Monica - Clover Park (2600 Ocean Park Blvd) and Reed Park (1133 7th St). National Night Out is an opportunity for the SMPD to honor the exceptional relationship our police and community share together. In addition, there will be food, entertainment, games, information booths and raffles at each park.
