Tomorrow evening, pack up the kids, bring an appetite, and head to the Bernal Rec Center behind the Library to meet some of the people who put the safety in Bernal’s public safety programs.
It’s time for the Bernal Heights edition of National Night Out, the nationwide program that seeks to build stronger ties between local communities and law enforcement. Neighbor Sarah shares the glamorous preview of what’s happening:
Join Your Neighbors on Tuesday, 8/4, for National Night Out at the Bernal Rec Center!
National Night Out, in its 32nd year, is designed to get neighbors out on a summer evening so they can meet each other, police and fire personnel, local organizations, and merchants – all with the goal of promoting community safety.
This year’s National Night Out celebration for the Ingleside Police District will be in Bernal Heights. Come out for a FREE BBQ dinner, lots of fun, kid-friendly activities, and a chance to learn from numerous organizations that will be tabling at the event. Join a neighborhood watch with SFSAFE; sign up for NERT training with the Fire Department; improve the safety of your block through environmental improvements like planting a tree with Friends of the Urban Forest.
Meet members of the city attorney’s office, the district attorney’s office, and Supervisor Campos’s staff to voice any concerns to them directly. Climb the SF Park rock climbing wall; jump in bouncy houses; play basketball with SFPD recruits. Visit the library to learn how it can be safe place for teens and tweens. Pick up the coveted 2015 edition of the Bernal Heights Safety Resource handout. Full details below:
