No Better Time to Get to Know Your Neighbors

Jul 13, 2022 12:00AM ● By By Debra Dingman

DIXON, CA (MPG) - If you don't already know your neighbors, National Night Out offers a good time to meet them and it's just around the corner.

Register now with the Dixon Police Department if you are planning a Block Party for the 39th event on Tuesday, August 2. In the past, several neighborhoods in Dixon have registered and got visits from public services including police, fire, and even our Mayor.

The program is played out in thousands of communities across the country and promotes neighbors getting to know neighbors with a goal of preventing crime, drug and violence through awareness. If you know something about your neighbors such as the cars they drive and something about the children, then it helps one know when something is out of the ordinary, officials say.

It also helps build good relations with local public servants. Even our Mayor and City Councilmen will be out visiting neighborhoods as they cancelled their normal City Council Meeting for it.

It is not too late to throw some plans into place. They can be as simple as blankets on the lawn and a punch bowl of lemonade or as complicated as a hot dog barbecue in the cul-de-sac.

The last day to register for a National Night Out block party is Friday, July 29. There is an online registration form to download, or you can pick one up at the front counter of the Dixon Police Department lobby. Once completed, please email the form and your map to [email protected] or bring them to the Dixon Police Department lobby.

The Community Services Section of the Dixon Police Department manages police-community programs like the K-9, motor unit, School Resource Officer, Community Services Officers, cadets, plans special events, and is the first line for business, civic, religious, or community groups. They also help organize Neighborhood Watches.

For more information, call the Dixon Police Department (707) 678-7070 or go to dixonpolice.org/nationalnightout.
