Join the Sammamish Police Department on August 7 for National Night Out

Release Date: July 30, 2018

If you enjoy helicopters, food trucks, police and fire vehicles, outdoor movies, and free family-friendly community events, then join the Sammamish Police Department at National Night Out at Central Washington University on Tuesday, August 7, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  


For the first time ever, the Sammamish Police Department is hosting National Night out at Central Washington University. This event is a fun way to meet your local first responders, learn crime prevention tips, and discover community resources while also enjoying a bouncy house, a visit from the King County Guardian One helicopter, and a free outdoor movie, Zootopia, courtesy of the City of Sammamish Parks department. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. with the landing of Guardian One. You’ll need to be their early to have your chance to get a photo-op with the helicopter, as it will be taking off promptly at 7:15 p.m.  


Dinner and snacks will be available for purchase from Buns on Wheels, Ezell’s Express, Rocky’s Empanadas, Emerald Corn Company, and Beez Neez Sausages. Bring cash, as no ATM will be available onsite. There will not be tables at the event, so community members are encouraged to bring blankets and enjoy a picnic in the grass.


After you’ve enjoyed the bouncy house, food trucks, and learned about how you can prevent crime in your home and neighborhood, stay for the free outdoor showing of Zootopia, scheduled to begin between 8:30 p.m and 9:00 p.m. Don’t forget to bring a blanket and/or low-back chairs so that you can enjoy the show in comfort.  


“National Night Out is all about community, crime prevention, and family-fun,” said Sammamish Police Chief Michelle Bennett. “The officers of the Sammamish Police Department can’t wait to meet all of you, and share information about the work of our first responders and tips for making our community safer.”  


The City of Sammamish and the Sammamish Police Department would like to thank the following sponsors: Central Washington University, Eastside Catholic, and the King County Sheriff Department.
