Long Beach Police Department’s Annual Night Out Against Crime Has Been Cancelled
The Long Beach Police Department’s annual Night Out Against Crime that was scheduled for Saturday, October 24, 2020 has been cancelled due to concerns over the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic.
Long Beach Police Chief, Billy Seal stated, “The Long Beach Police Department looks forward to this event every year and we are extremely saddened by the cancellation.
The Night Out Against Crime is an important FREE event featuring food, fun and games. It gives residents, especially children, the opportunity to meet the Long Beach Police Department Officers, as well as officials from many civic organizations and businesses that provide services in the area. On the other hand, the safety of our community members, business representatives and officers is of the utmost importance and a large gathering of people closely interacting with one another is
simply not a good idea at this time.”
While we are disappointed in the cancellation of the 2020 Night Out Against Crime we are looking forward to next year! We will return bigger and better in 2021!
