Bethel Park Police 2015 National Night Out

Please Come Join Us

Tuesday, August 4, 2015 6:30pm to 8:30pm

National Night Out is a nationwide event to promote community involvement in crime prevention activities, strong community-law enforcement partnerships and send a message to criminals that crime is not welcome.

Each neighborhood can choose how they want to participate.  Participation can be as simple as the entire street turning their porch lights on or go big and have a block party.  Please register your neighborhood, so we can have a Police Officer stop by your event or drive down the street with lights on.
