“I like it because it’s a real community involvement event. It’s an opportunity to talk in a relaxed atmosphere with local law enforcement and emergency first responders,” Alhambra Valley resident and NNO event sponsor Pete Sabine said. “It’s a time to get to know your neighbors, get to know your police force, just a great time for interaction. A chance to see the police in a different light. It’s one of the nights that I enjoy more than most.”

The event will be at the Alhambra Christmas Tree Farm at 2647 Reliez Valley Road, Martinez, from 6 pm to 9 pm. The event is free, and all are welcome.

This year, the Food Bank of Contra Costa – Solano will benefit from a fundraising food drive at the event. Attendees who bring a food donation will receive a free raffle ticket to the main event prize raffle at 7:30 pm.

Several first responders will be at the event, including Martinez Police Department, Contra Costa Fire Protection District, American Medical Response, East Bay Parks Regional Police, the California Highway Patrol, and the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff. A BBQ food truck, face painting for the kids, ice cream sandwiches (sold by a local Boy Scout pack) and free bicycle safety information for parents.

There will be dancing to the live music by Jinx Jones and Mitch Polzak click here to see the band video:

Steel Smokin’ BBQ food truck, ice cream treats from local Boy Scouts, safety demonstrations from local law enforcement agencies, CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) disaster preparedness information, child ID program information, displays from local fire department and other emergency first-responders, face painting fun plus an animal petting zoo!

Through neighborhood policing, the local law enforcement has encouraged neighborhoods and homeowners associations to host their own events. Previous years have seen BBQs and pot-luck dinners lasting well into the night as neighbors took the opportunity to interact.

National Night Out is a community-police awareness-raising event in the U.S., held the first Tuesday of August. The event has been held annually since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada. The “Night” is meant to increase awareness about police programs in communities, such as drug prevention, town watch, neighborhood watch, and other anti-crime efforts.

National Night Out now involves over 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.

Last year over 500 Martinez and nearby community residents attended this NNO event.
