National Night Out is based on the concept that when neighbors know each other, the community is safer. Single blocks organize a potluck which is held on the street or a front yard on August 1 each year.

In Shoreline and Lake Forest Park, police and fire units do their best to visit every registered party, interacting with the neighbors and letting the kids see the fire trucks up close.

Whether this is already a long-standing tradition on your block, or if you have been thinking about getting to know your neighbors, consider participating this year.

Registering your party is easy and city staff will help you with the paperwork to close your street.

In Lake Forest Park, the police are the contact:

Registration Forms are available at the Police Department or online:
NNO Coordinator: Casey Krzyminski
Lake Forest Park Police Department
206-364-8216 x 523

In Shoreline, the Office of Neighborhoods is the contact:

Registration is required for all parties, including permitted events involving street closures. By registering, we count you in Shoreline's official Night Out Crime Prevention efforts and map your event. Whether you hold your event on the official Night Out evening or you choose a different date, these simple steps will make your registration process quick and easy.
  • A permit is usually required if you hold an activity in the street or close the street. The permit application for street closure on NNO is available online. Contact City of Shoreline Permit Services at 206-801-2500 regarding requirements. 
  • Registration and permit applications must be received by Tuesday, July 18 for August 1 events. Meeting this deadline will also ensure you are in the drawing for either a police or fire crew visit, if possible. 
For questions contact Constance Perenyi at 206-801-2253.
