National Night Out (established in 1984) is a community tradition that reaches San Diego neighborhoods on the evening of the first Tuesday in August. Here in Pacific Beach — Aug. 6 on the library grounds — members of the San Diego Police Department Northern Division, Pacific Beach Fire Station 21, PB Woman’s Club, District 2 City Council member Jennifer Campbell, State Senator Toni Atkins and even Bird electric scooter reps, were in attendance to meet the community, answer their questions and partake in the various potluck dishes.

National Night Out is designed to 1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, 2) generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts, 3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community relations and 4) send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
