National Night Out


On Tuesday, August 6th, neighborhoods throughout the City of Sammamish are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 36th annual “Night Out.” The Sammamish Night Out, in conjunction with National Night Out across America, is designed to:


  • Heighten crime prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit in crime prevention campaigns;
  • Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back!


In the past, many citizens have found that Night Out is a fun time for neighbors. Through the traditional activity of keeping outdoor lighting on, residents have found many creative ways to spend the evening outside with neighbors.  Night Out has been an enjoyable and effective way to promote police/community partnerships for our city.


There will also be a community event at CWU (Central Washington University -120 228th Ave NE, Sammamish, WA) from 6PM-9PM August 6th, 2019. More information to follow.


Participation in Night Out is simple:


  1. At 5:00 p.m., on Tuesday, August 6th, turn on all outside lights. Lights are a visible statement of neighborhood unity against crime.


  1. Between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., join with your neighbors outside in some planned activity. This might include a BBQ, a potluck, an ice cream social or just walking around and visiting with each other.

Please register your block as a participant in night out.

Registration need to be received no later than July 31st.
