“National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Together, we are making that happen,” Danville’s public information officer, Geoff Gillette, said in a statement.

From 6-9 p.m. on Tuesday (Aug. 6), neighborhoods throughout the San Ramon Valley will be celebrating by hosting block parties, festivals, cookouts and other various community events with youth activities, that will be visited by police officers as well as City and Town Council members.

Residents in Danville can still register to have their party visited by police or town officials by contacting crime prevention specialist Amy Ballock at 314-3717 or

Homes in San Ramon can register for a party by visiting the city’s official website and can contact San Ramon Police Department’s crime prevention specialist, Darlene Kittredge, at for any additional questions.
