And don't forget about National Night Out (NNO) on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Tomorrow is the last day to register your NNO event with the police department so we can make sure to visit. To register, go to https://www.riversideca.gov/rpd/community/nno/nnopage1.asp.

National Night Out (NNO) is a community-wide crime prevention program sponsored locally by the Riverside Police Department and our local businesses. NNO is an annual event held throughout the United States to promote cooperation between the police and the community. Neighborhoods take it upon themselves to organize fun events that encourage friendships and safety.

NNO events are designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know that Riverside neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Neighborhood social events are being held throughout the City from 6:00-9:00 P.M.

Police personnel will be out in force and visiting events that are registered with the department. Fire and City personnel will also be participating in the activities.
