The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a National Night Out event in Carpinteria on Tuesday, August 3, 2021. 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 places to live and work.
This block-party event, coordinated by Community Resource Deputy James Carovano, will be in the 800-block of Linden Avenue from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 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 from Forensics, the Behavioral Sciences Unit, K9 Unit, and Custody Deputies from the Special Operations Response Team will be there to talk about the work they do. Carpinteria Fire, AMR, California Highway Patrol, and California State Parks will be joining us along with agents from the DEA Los Angeles Field Division. Donuts the dog, from At Ease International will be making her rounds, the Carpinteria Skate Park will be there to talk about the progress they are making, and DJ Marco will be live from the Seal Fountain. A donor from the community has graciously donated refreshments.
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 Carovano said “I am proud to introduce the community of Carpinteria to my colleagues at the Sheriff’s Office.” He added, “We are bringing team members from exciting areas of the Sheriff’s Office to this event, along with allied agencies and community groups for a fun summer evening.”
