Carpinteria, Calif. – The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a National Night Out event in Carpinteria on Wednesday, August 10, 2022. National Night Out is a nationwide, annual community-building campaign that promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer, more caring place to live and work.
This block-party event, coordinated by Community Resource Deputy Bryan Dickey, will be in the 800-block of Linden Avenue from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Sheriff’s Office has partnered with the community as well as our allied agencies to offer this chance to re-connect in the fresh air. Sheriff’s Office staff including a K9 Unit, Custody Deputies and Detectives from Human Resources will be there to mingle with the community. Carpinteria Fire and California State Parks will be joining us along with agents from the DEA Ventura Field Office and Donuts, a therapy dog from the Santa Barbara County Fire Agencies Regional Peer Support Team.
National Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for our nation to stand together and promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement. When law enforcement and the community work closely together, some amazing things can happen.”
Community Resource Deputy Dickey said “I am excited to spend time with members of the Carpinteria community and to introduce them to my colleagues at the Sheriff’s Office.” He added, “We are bringing a mix of team members from the Sheriff’s Office to this event, along with allied agencies and community groups for a fun summer evening.”
