Tuesday, August 2, 2011
Contact: (916) 210-6000,

'Today, as part of the 28th annual National Night Out, thousands of communities across California and across our nation stand with law enforcement to re-affirm our commitment to keeping our neighborhoods safe. Achieving that shared goal, and being smart on crime, requires that we build relationships of trust between communities and the sworn officers who work tirelessly to protect them. National Night Out provides an opportunity to strengthen those ties and engages community members, faith leaders, local businesspeople and service providers. I encourage all Californians to participate in National Night Out.'
