— re. National Night Out 2018
During the last National Night Out hosted in Willow Glen on Tuesday 07 August 2018, California State Senator Jim Beall issued a Certificate of Recognition to Willow Glen Neighborhood Association. The certificate from the Senator in the 15 District recognized the association "For efforts in unifying the community and standing up to crime, it is your dedication and commitment to the public that is making our community a safe place."
National Night Out was organized by The Willow Glen Neighborhood Association with the year's host, the Willow Glen Creamery, at the Willow Glen Town Square on the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Willow Street.
National Night Out is a national program (trademarked) by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW). It occurs annually on the first Tuesday of August. NATW describes the event as "an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live."
In agreement with National Night out themes, WGNA regularly addresses issues related to public health and safety (police, fire, emergency response, coverage areas, public welfare, etc.). We frequently invite guest speakers from the San Jose Police Department (SPJPD) on the topic of a neighborhood watch and other anti-crime efforts.
This coming November 8th, we will be joined by the County Santa Clara District Attorney's Community Prosecution Unit and the SJPD. (See the separate post).
