CHULA VISTA TO PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL NIGHT OUT
If you have ever wondered what the Chula Vista Police Department (CVPD) headquarters looks like, or would like to meet a police K-9 and other CVPD officers, here’s your opportunity! CVPD will be hosting National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7, from 4 to 8 p.m. Bring the entire family and meet your neighbors and the officers that serve you.Held at the Police Headquarters, located at 315 Fourth Avenue, the free event will include tours of the facility, mobile field force demonstrations, Jaws of Life demonstration, Home Depot Children’s workshop, a kid’s zone area, crime prevention information, and an opportunity to meet S.W.A.T. team members and more.
The National Night Out event was founded in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch with the purpose of creating safer neighborhoods by strengthening the partnership between residents and public safety officials. With residents encouraged to turn on their porch lights, it has developed into a great way to meet neighbors and let criminals know residents are organizing and ready to fight back. Over 15,000 communities across the United States, as well as cities in Canada and military bases worldwide participate in the celebration.
