The 27th annual Manteca National Night Out is Tuesday, Aug. 5.
Manteca Police and Manteca Parks & Recreation are trying to register block parties for the event. Last year there were over 80 in Manteca.
They have proven an effective way to fight crime as it brings neighbors together who once used to just wave and say “hi.” As a result, of knowing each other better, they take a greater note of patterns and when they see something suspicious will alert police.
To register a block party and get into a drawing for a visit from McGruff the Crime Dog that evening contact either Brandy Clark at 209.456.8623 or Jodie Estarziau at 209.456.8161.
