National Night Out 2022



Type of event: National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, from 6pm-9 pm. 

The Chico Police Department is announcing National Night Out, which will be taking place Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

National Night Out events represent several opportunities:

  1. It allows Chico Police to heighten awareness of crime and crime prevention in our city.
  2. It allows Chico Police to encourage and be a part of strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
  3. The community symbolically sends a message to criminals, letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime.
  4. It allows us, most specifically, to communicate the message that we (the Police Department) can’t do it all and to encourage our citizenry to consciously be a part of helping to keep our community safe. 

Traditionally, neighborhoods plan events during the evening hours on National Night Out. Some neighborhoods have planned large-scale events with bounce houses, games and displays. Other neighborhoods plan more informal events, which can be as simple as joining with neighbors on a front lawn to share a cold treat or having a block party and BBQ. If you are planning a Nation Night Out neighborhood event and would like a representative from the Chico Police Department to stop by to visit and answer questions, please call Crime Prevention Officer Ed Nelson at 897-4942 to register your event.
