National Night Out is back! Join us on Aug. 2

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash., Aug 1, 2022 – Meet your local Police and Fire first responders and learn how to keep your neighborhood safer at National Night Out!

National Night Out is a nationwide effort that offers community members an opportunity to connect with those serving their community, ask questions and enjoy a summer-style cookout. Last year, 16,000 cities across the country participated!

NNO is designed to:

  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships.
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.
  • Generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs.

The Lynnwood Times compiled a list of NNO events taking place around Snohomish County on Tuesday, Aug. 2.

The Lynnwood Police Department, in partnership with community organizations and other city departments, encourages residents to organize a neighborhood event to bring neighbors together in a safe and meaningful way.

By involving several households in each neighborhood, everyone shares in the fun of creating a real community building “block party.” It could be as simple as a dessert potluck in a garage, grilling hot dogs by the poolside of an apartment complex, or a barbeque gathering in a driveway.

As we continue to closely monitor local health guidelines, we will make any necessary adjustments as needed and we are asking our participants to do the same. With health and safety as our top priority, the LPD and its partners will try to visit as many neighborhoods as possible to connect with residents during this fun event. 


The Marysville Police Department, the Marysville Fire District, and all of our community partners enjoy spending time with our community members and answering your questions. We’re excited to see you on Tuesday, Aug. 2 from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Jennings Park! 

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. It’s a nationwide effort that began in 1984. Last year, 16,000 communities across the country participated. Marysville is proud to be one of them.
