2019 National Night Out event (scheduled for August 6th), will be cancelled

Dear Community Partner,

On behalf of the Placentia Police Department, we are unfortunately reaching out to inform you that the 2019 National Night Out event (scheduled for August 6th), will be cancelled due to logistical complications that the department has not been able to overcome.

With the time invested in planning for this year’s event, we did not come to this decision easily; however, the cancellation was needed to ensure that we did not have any unforeseen complications during the event. The Placentia Police Department is committed to hosting only the highest-quality events that our residents, vendors, and partners deserve, and due to challenges outside of our control, we are not able to host at this caliber.

In lieu of hosting National Night Out this year, the department will be hosting an Open House at the remodeled Placentia Police Station in the beginning of 2020. Once an exact date has been determined, we will reach out to all vendors and organizations for collaboration during the Open House. To meet the communities expectations, the Command Staff within the Police Department has committed to hosting National Night Out in 2020, and planning for the event will begin late 2019!

In closing, the department would like to thank you for your time and energy during this planning effort. Your support, dedication, and efforts for the Police Department, and this community, are appreciated and valued. We look forward to collaborating soon.

Thank you,

Steven Torrence,
