On Tuesday, August 2, neighbors across the country and here in Bothell - will turn on their porch lights, step outside, and celebrate a special night:  National Night Out! 

National Night Out is about building safe communities by getting to know your neighbors.  It's as simple as that!

Whatever you plan,  the goal is to have fun and get to know your neighbors a little better.  When you know each other, it's easier to share basic contact information, that could be vital in an emergency situation.  printable contact form asks for name, address, cell, how many people live in home Opens in new windowFeel free to print copies of the simple form we created here, or create your own and share with neighbors.

National Night Out events are also an opportunity to invite Bothell Police officers to stop by and say hello.  Our officers look forward to National Night Out and the chance to have friendly conversations at neighborhood gatherings.
