"MOVE OVER" to Protect First Responders:

In California, the “Move Over” laws state that drivers must either change lanes or reduce speed when approaching an active emergency vehicle with blinking lights. Failure to obey the “Move Over” law can result in fines of up to $1,000, plus points on your driving record. Click here for more information.

National Night Out - August 3rd, 2021

On Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021, neighborhoods throughout San Rafael are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “38th Annual National Night Out” (NNO) crime prevention event. National Night Out 2021 corporate sponsors are Ring, Associa, AT&T, Academy Sports + Outdoors, Starbucks, and New York Life. 

This year will be San Rafael’s eight-time participation in this nationwide event.  The 2020 NNO was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We are looking forward to coming face to face with the community for one night of fun and festivities throughout our city.  From 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm on August 3rd, residents in neighborhoods throughout San Rafael and across the nation are asked to turn on outside lights and spend the evening with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, contests, youth activities, and more. This is a night to send a powerful message about neighborhood unity, crime prevention awareness, safety, and police-community partnerships. Let’s show that San Rafael is united and dedicated to building a safer, more caring community.

If you want to hold an event, you must fill out the registration form, including a detailed description of your activities (locations, time, schedule, number of people, activities, etc.)

If your plan includes closing a street, you will also need to submit a City Events and Parade permit form. You may also be requested to carry insurance if your activity includes any public property. The Police Department Events Coordinator will need to review and evaluate all the information you provide and may contact you regarding the planning for your event.

Please send your registration form to Antonette Bullock, SRPD NNO Coordinator, no later than July 20th, 2021. For more information, you can contact her at 415-485-3114 or email at 511@srpd.org. We look forward to your participation in this event!
