“National Night Out is always terrific. Community members throughout West Hollywood enjoy hanging out and talking with their neighbors while making sure public safety and neighborhood watch is part of the night,” said West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “National Night Out gives residents and local businesses opportunities to meet representatives from West Hollywood City Hall, West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, and our local L.A. County Fire Stations and provides opportunities to socialize and make new friends. I hope to see everyone there!”

National Night Out 2019, marks the 36th anniversary, which began in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, law enforcement and community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized against crime. Nationwide, more than 35 million people in neighborhoods across the country gather outdoors to celebrate their unity and their successes in the fight against crime. Celebrating National Night Out has been a tradition in West Hollywood since the City’s incorporation.
National Night Out 2019 participants include members of the West Hollywood City Council, Neighborhood Watch groups, the West Hollywood Gateway, the City of West Hollywood’s Recreation Services Division, and the City’s Public Safety Commission and City’s Russian Advisory Board. There are eight separate events scheduled to take place throughout the City.
