The Monterey Park Police Department invites the public for an evening of educational activities, displays from our Special Response Team, K9 Unit, Community Services Bureau, Animal Services and members of the Monterey Park Fire Department and Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.). 

National Night Out is designed to: (1) Increase crime prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and relationships in, local anti-crime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals by letting them know that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
