National Night Out is Back in Washington for 2021

The annual National Night Out, a community/police partnership event that promotes anti-crime programs in communities on the first Tuesday in August, is back for 2021 after a one-year hiatus during the pandemic. With the exception of 2020, this annual event has been enjoyed by Americans every year since 1984.

Although a complete list of National Night Out events in Washington is not yet available, we can confirm that counties throughout the state have local police departments participating. Here are some we can share with you.
