Celebrate National Night Out Tomorrow

The Folsom Police Department is proud to partner with the community for National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2.

This year, Folsom Police Department, Folsom Fire Department and City officials will join hundreds of residents at neighborhood park and block parties that have been organized by local Neighborhood Watch groups. Attendees can expect to learn useful crime prevention information, and have the opportunity to meet police officers and firefighters, and possibly even the Folsom Police Department K-9 or mounted units. For more information on National Night Out or how to start a Neighborhood Watch in your neighborhood, contact Jessica Hess, Folsom Police Department volunteer coordinator, at 916-351-3409 or jhess@folsom.ca.us.
