Tonight is "National Night Out", a nationwide program designed to promote safe neighborhoods.
Tonight many of our neighbors will host block parties, coffees, or turn on their porch lights in support of National Night Out. I encourage all San Mateo residents to get to know their neighbors and celebrate National Night Out.
As a former Board Member with the San Mateo Neighborhood Watch Group and in my job as a Deputy District Attorney in Alameda County, I am proud to support the hundreds of blocks in the City of San Mateo that help promote safe neighborhoods by having active, organized neighborhood watch groups.
It is also a fact that organized neighborhoods not only keep streets safe, they promote friendlier neighborhoods as well!
If your block is not yet organized, find out how easy it is to form a Neighborhood Watch group on your block by clicking HERE.
Happy National Night Out, and as McGruff the Crime Dog would say, "Take A Bite Out of Crime!"
