Glendale Police Are All Out on National Night Out

National Night Out is an annual event that promotes police-community partnership and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhood a safer and more caring place to live. National Night Out is about getting to know your neighbors and the officers that patrol your neighborhoods. By knowing who your neighbors are, you will recognize the suspicious person(s) and activity. Please help us share this event with our Glendale residents and community. The Glendale Police Department encourages all of our Glendale residents to participate in this neighborhood camaraderie, either by attending or hosting. This year’s National Night Out event is on August 3rd! Download Meeting Flyer Download Event Flyer Learn More About National Night Out Register To Participate
