“What’s Really Going On

National Night Out Get the Word Out
August 2nd, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Join your neighbors and “give crime and drugs a going away party!”
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and to provide an opportunity to promote and celebrate police-community partnerships in crime prevention efforts.
From 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., residents in neighborhoods throughout Modesto and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors. Many neighborhoods throughout Modesto will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, ice cream socials, potlucks and games. Our National Night Out celebration was held on August 2nd, 2022.
