    The Police Department, along with the Park, Recreation and Community Services Department, will be hosting their annual National Night Out. 
     National Night Out is a nationwide, one night rally, where citizens and law enforcement join forces to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. Last year there were well over 1,100 people in attendance.  
     All Burbank citizens and businesses are encouraged to celebrate with neighbors on your block by working together to make a difference, by planning a barbeque, block party, or meeting outdoors.  Get to know your neighbors and discuss emergency preparedness, neighborhood watch, or safety issues that will make your neighborhood more secure. 
     For those citizens who do not have time to plan their own event, come join the City of Burbank’s official block party on the Chandler Bikeway. Information booths, exhibits, and food will be available. Parking is limited to availability on the street. 

       When: Tuesday, August 2, 2011
      Time:    5:30 pm – 8:00 p.m.
      Where: Chandler Bike Path (between Keystone & Brighton)
