Carpinteria, Calif. – The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Girls Inc. of Carpinteria to host a National Night Out and Community Table event in Carpinteria on Tuesday, August 1, 2023. 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 will be in the 800-block of Linden Avenue from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Sheriff’s Office has partnered Girl Inc. of Carpinteria who will be hosting a community table where community members are invited to bring a “picnic” dinner and share a meal and conversation with fellow Carpinterians. The Sheriff’s Office has also invited 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 Recruiters from Human Resources will be there to mingle with the community. Carpinteria Fire, Carpinteria Public Works, and California State Parks will be joining us along with more being added each week.
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.”
