Due to COVID-19, National Night Out has been cancelled for 2020. Please check back each month should the event be reactivated.

Celebrate the Spirit of National Night Out with Us!


Strengthen your community by knowing your neighbors, watching out for each other, and working together for a safe community.  This event is open to all residents and blocks in the City of San Mateo.

National Night Out is an annual nationwide event designed to:



  • Raise crime prevention awareness;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and unity;
  • Develop partnerships between the City and the community on the “block level.”
Be a part of strengthening your community by knowing your neighbors, watching out for each other, and working together for a safe community!

Is Your Neighborhood Watch block registered?


If your block is a neighborhood watch block and is registered to participate in this year's National Night Out, we will send a police representative to visit your event.

If your block is not currently part of neighborhood watch, this is a great opportunity to get your neighbors interested in joining this valuable crime prevention program.

Need Ideas?


Give us a call at (650) 522-7791 or email neighborhoodwatch@cityofsanmateo.org. We'll help you organize your event and give you creative ideas for advertising it and getting your community involved!
