National Night Out

On Tuesday, August 1st, 6-8pm, Charlottesville hosted its first National Night Out Event at Tonsler and Washington Parks. This national program has brought together millions of community members and police around the country to foster a sense of community, help make our neighborhoods safer places, and enhance the relationship between neighborhoods and law enforcement.

At National Night Out, neighbors can enjoy food from Mission BBQ (Washington Park) and Papa Johns (Tonsler Park) - but show up early to ensure you get a bite to eat from these generous vendors! We will have activities for folks young and old, an opportunity to meet with your local officers, and visits from the local fire department. 

Bring your family and your neighbors to this fun evening where we will celebrate our community and continue to make Charlottesville the best place to live!

What We Do
James Pierce

The Police Department supports the Boys & Girls Club Teen Program by sending officers to the Cherry Avenue Club from 7 to 11 p.m. during the summer. There is nothing quite like seeing a police officer on a Teen Night in the Club, smiling, shooting hoops, or riding a mechanical bull to humanize all officers for the kids. The Club appreciates its unique partnership with the CPD and CPF.
