It was a fantastic Tuesday evening at the Venice Sign for LAPD’s National Night Out! And, Venice Paparazzi was on the scene to document it all, including hosting a fun police themed photo booth. View pics below!
Here is a message from Venice Chamber President and Venice Sign event producer George Francisco.
On a perfect California summer night, the the Venice Chamber of Commerce joined with LAPD’s Pacific Division, The Pacific Area Boosters Association and L.A. City Council Member Mike Bonin to celebrate National Night Out at the world-famous Venice Sign.
National Night Out is celebrated the first Tuesday of every August to promote police-community partnership and attendees from all over Pacific Division enjoyed meeting local law enforcement officers and getting to know them personally.
The highlight of the festivities was a visit from LAPD Chief Michel Moore who addressed the crowd and joined with the Command Staff and Senior Lead Officers from Pacific Division to light up the Venice Sign “LAPD Blue” as The Clash’s rendition of “I Fought The Law” rang out in fitting Venice style.
Windward Ave was filled with valuable information on public safety programs from agencies like the California Highway Patrol, County Lifeguards, 911 Call Center and our own Beach Detail.
Representatives from Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, Congressman Ted Lieu, Assemblywoman Autumn Burke and Mayor Eric Garcetti were on hand to answer questions as the chill sounds of the Del Rey Community Jazz Band led by Danny Meyer entertained everyone.
A free bike valet was provided by The L.A. County Bike Coalition and dozens of kids enjoyed a safe cycling class run by Walk N Rollers while Bird had their own safe scootering course laid out to educate riders.
The night was made possible by the generous contribution of sponsors such as System 1, Brandview Capital Partners, Bird, AT&T, Rolling Stone, Gary & Vera Sutter and Cantalini’s Salerno Beach Restaurant.
