Elk Grove's Laguna Greens to Hold 'National Night Out' Event; EGPD Chief Stresses Positive Outreach Opportunity

July 21, 2017 |

As part of the National Night Out gatherings, Elk Grove's Laguna Greens Neighborhood Watch has scheduled an event. 

National Night Out, which will be observed across the country, is part of an effort to build safe neighborhoods, and to create relations with local law enforcement agencies. The program started in Pennsylvania in 1984 and has spread from there. 

The Laguna Greens event will be held on Tuesday, August 1 at Jeannie Womack Park on Castleview Drive. The evening gathering will start at 6:30, and in addition to the opportunity to interact with representatives from the Elk Grove Police Department, there are children activities planned and food will be served.

The Laguna Greens event, which is in its 22nd year of participation, is one of several neighborhood associations participating citywide. One of the participants in the citywide event will be Elk Grove Police Chief Brian Noblett, who said the annual event is a critical part of the law enforcement's ongoing efforts to connect with residents.  

"National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes neighborhood connectedness and police-community partnerships that are truly the basis upon which effective public safety is based," Noblett said. "National Night Out provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under casual, positive circumstances; this type of interaction goes a long way toward enhancing the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement."
