The Redmond Police and Fire Departments are proud partners of National Night Out and will host neighborhood visits on Aug. 7 by Redmond police officers, firefighters, search and rescue teams and elected officials. All Redmond residents are invited to register and plan neighborhood parties by Friday, July 20 at http://bit.ly/NNO18RPD.

National Night Out (NNO) is a combined effort by neighborhoods across the country to prevent crime and drugs in our communities. This unique event is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and is held on the first Tuesday of August each year. To check if your neighborhood is already registered or to register after July 20, please email crimeprevention@redmond.gov or call 425-556-2632. A response cannot be guaranteed once online registration closes due to high request volumes. When registering neighborhood events, you can request a visit from any of the participating safety departments. We will do our best to match all requests and help make the night fun and informative. Registration is easy – just list the time, place and which department you would prefer to attend.

“As an NNO partner, we work to gather important information and share it with you during this national event,” said Julie Beard, Redmond Police Department Community Engagement Sergeant. “NNO is about stepping out of our homes, learning more about those around us and building a safe place together. Redmond’s unique community is a result of the relationships built between those who live, work and play here. We are confident this combined City effort will help our community stay more informed and safe.”
