Ontario’s Mayor and City Council are proud to announce this year’s National Night Out event scheduled for Tuesday, August 6, 2019. This year’s event will celebrate the City’s ongoing commitment to maintaining a high level of public safety and quality of life. National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, enhance participation in local anticrime efforts, and strengthen our community’s partnerships with law enforcement.
The Ontario National Night Out event invites residents, local businesses and visitors to gather with first responders and public service providers to promote crime prevention awareness, public safety, and neighborhood unity. This year marks the 33rd anniversary of Ontario’s participation in the National Night Out program. Last year, Ontario residents from more than 200 neighborhoods participated in the event. This year’s event promises to be another award winning celebration with block parties throughout the City representing Ontario’s diverse community.
Ontario is also launching its new Dog Walker Watch program during National Night Out. Volunteers are needed to host an information table of the program at one of the city’s three dog parks.
Those interested in hosting a neighborhood block party are asked to register their event with the Ontario Police Department Crime Prevention Unit by Monday, July 8, 2019. Neighborhood event hosts will be eligible to have special guests attend their block parties and to receive National Night Out promotional materials.
