All across America, people celebrate the first Tuesday evening in August as National Night Out's Night  gainst  Crime! The National Association of Town Watch invites communities to join forces to promote police-community partnerships, crime/drug/violence prevention, safety, and neighborhood unity. Over 37 million people in more than 15,000 communities nationwide attend this event.

The Escondido Police Department, supported in part by Target, will be holding an Open House on Tuesday August 6, 2013, between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. at the Escondido Police and Fire Headquarters, 1163 N. Centre City Parkway.  You and your family are invited to celebrate the 30TH  Annual National Night Out with us.  Law Enforcement personnel will be on site to answer questions and provide resource information on crime prevention and safety. Activities will be provided for children. Group station tours of the police and fire headquarters will be offered. K-9 demonstrations will be performed. The event is supported by Target  which will provide refreshments, a face painter  and also draw string backpacks to the first 200 children that visit their child safety table.
