2012 National Night Out

Join the Mill Creek Police Department and the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office at the 2012 National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7th from 5 PM to 8 PM at Willis Tucker Community Park.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships;
  • Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back;
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; and
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs.

Families can visit booths hosted by the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management, Naval Station Everett (which won a national award for its booth last year) and local police department and fire districts. Emergency vehicles and personnel will be onsite to offer demonstrations and crime prevention information.

There also will be free food including hot dogs, sno-cones and corn-on-the-cob.

Sponsored by the Snohomish County Executive Office in partnership with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, local police departments and area nonprofits, the annual event will feature free food, face painting, games and more, including live music by Jette and the Resonators.

National Night Out is an annual national event that is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch as a way to promote citizen involvement in crime and drug prevention activities, strengthen police-community relations and encourage neighborhood camaraderie as part of keeping the community safe.

"Generating support for anti-crime efforts strengthens our communities," said Snohomish County Councilmember Dave Gossett. "National Night Out is a great event for promoting community partnerships and generating understanding of and participation in crime prevention efforts."

National Night Out presents a wonderful opportunity for you to gather with your neighbors, get better acquainted, and talk about issues of common concern.

National Night Out visitors will have the opportunity to learn how local law enforcement is working to reduce crime and protect families as well as learn steps they can take to increase public safety.

“Improving public safety is something each of us can do,” said Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon. “National Night Out is a great annual event for learning new ways to keep our community safer.”

Families can visit booths hosted by the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management, Naval Station Everett (which won a national award for its booth last year) and local police department and fire districts.
