National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes public safety, community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.

Participants had a great time meeting members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's and Fire Departments, challenged a deputy in a sack race, played tug of war with firefighters, got an up-close look at emergency vehicles and enjoyed a barbecue dinner of hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and sno-cones.
