NEIGHBORS AND PARK STATION CELEBRATE NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

SFPD sponsored the annual National Night Out Against Crime (NNO) event in San Francisco on Tuesday, August 1, with all San Francisco police stations participating. National Night Out is the country’s united effort to promote neighborhood involvement to help stem crime and create safer neighborhoods.  This is accomplished through strengthening police-community relations and encouraging neighborhood camaraderie by hosting neighborhood events such as NNO.

For the second year in a row, Park Station hosted the event for the Duboce Triangle and the Park District in the Harvey Milk Photo Center Exhibition Room and the upper lawn area and patio just outside the room. NNO was a huge success again, judging by the number of people attending.

Entertainment was provided by: Xian Yn Academy of the Arts, who demonstrated Chinese dancing; a flash mob performance and lessons from the Bay Area (Hula) Hoopers; and, Praise Dancers from a local church, a balloon artist who the kids found especially entertaining. Arts and crafts were available inside with all recycled materials provided by SCRAP.

There was also a police canine and a Park Ranger ATV to interact with. SAFE and other safety organizations were also there to provide information and tips on health and safety.

It was a great chance to meet and interact with the officers from Park Station who patrol the Duboce Triangle and Duboce Park. They have been very responsive to our concerns and we now have a dedicated foot patrol that goes through the park on a regular basis.
