Neighborhoods throughout Bothell are invited to participate in National Night Out, a campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood safety.

National Night Out is an evening when residents are asked to turn on their front porch lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement. Many of the neighborhoods choose to host a block party, a cookout at a park, or some other community gathering. There will be teams of officers available to stop by National Night Out events as community members value the importance of building relationships, community, and trust with the residents.

National Night Out helps spread awareness about crime prevention programs and the impact the residents of Bothell can have on reducing crime, drugs, and violence in the community. Local neighborhoods and homeowners’ associations play a critical role in assisting the police department in these efforts and can help make the neighborhoods safer.
