Irvine, CA – The Irvine Police Department (IPD) invites residents to join us for National Night Out Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. National Night Out is a national, annual community-building campaign that provides an opportunity for residents and law enforcement build relationships and a sense of community in local neighborhoods.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Albertsons and Target, IPD will host family-friendly events at three Irvine locations (see addresses below). Each event will feature emergency vehicle displays from IPD and the Orange County Fire Authority, games and prizes for kids, face painting, and an opportunity to meet and get to know police officers in your neighborhood.
The three Irvine locations are:
– Cypress Community Park, 255 Visions, Irvine, CA 92618 (Bring a bike and helmet for the free bike rodeo and registration)
– University Park, 1 Beech Tree Lane, Irvine, CA 92612 (Event held in the back parking lot near the tennis courts. Lot entrance is at the end of Lexicon off Sandburg Way)
– The Ranch Park, 5161 Royale, Irvine, CA 92604
Residents will also have a chance to learn about opportunities to volunteer and contribute to their neighborhood’s safety with IPD’s Community Emergency Response Team and Irvine Disaster Emergency Communications team.
Attendees who bring a canned or non-perishable food donation will receive a free raffle ticket. Food donations will go to Families Forward, a non-profit supporting housing, food, and self-sufficiency services for families in crisis.
