Across the nation, on the first Tuesday of August, communities will come together to celebrate positive connections between the community and local law enforcement.

Residents are encouraged to turn on their lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with their neighbors from 6 - 9 p.m.

Since the event aims to foster connections between community members and local law enforcement, Keizer Police Department officers along with the Keizer Fire District and Marion Country Fire District #1 will be dropping by parties to say hello.

Organizers who register their party with the police department can expect a drop-in visit from a police officer sometime during the evening. Specific time slots are not available.

Parties can be registered at. www.keizer.org/national-night-out-2021. Registration needs to be submitted by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 28.

Some officers will be accompanied by other police or city staff. Because of the numbers of parties officers will not be able to stay for the whole time, however they do want to make time to talk with community members and answer any questions.
