Underground Elephant Participates in National Night Out

National Night Out (NNO) is a nationwide event held annually on on the first Tuesday of August that presents an opportunity for communities to get to know their police officers and neighbors through food, games, music, and in San Diego an option to attend the night’s Padres game. The goal is to foster a safe neighborhood and stronger relationship between law enforcement and the public. This year, East Village Association and the San Diego Police Department is partnering with local businesses in the area, like Underground Elephant, to host a space to interact with police officers. Underground Elephant is happy to be apart of National Night Out and the mission behind it.

  1. I participated in National Night Out for years when I worked as a crime victim advocate. It was a good way to get the community together and interact with law enforcement and other first responders. Glad Underground Elephant recognizes the importance of San Diego’s law enforcement officers and are doing so by helping to host a space. My experience has been that this helps the community develop a better rapport with law enforcement and gain a better understanding of how to protect themselves and their community. We had safety demonstrations (such as showing people the proper way to use car seats), games, and appearances from the fire department (the kids always love seeing the fire trucks).
