Posted on 02/10/2020

National Night Out is the City’s Police Department’s community-building event that strives to enhance relationships between citizens and law enforcement.

At its January 28 Council meeting, the Mill Creek Police Department presented the City with the National Night Out Against Crime National Award for 2019. This award recognizes outstanding community participation.

The City of Mill Creek placed 19th in a pool of 45 nationwide entities that registered their event with the National Association of Town Watch.

In addition to the main community event at Pine Meadow Park, the Police Department asked residents to host block parties within their own neighborhoods. Block parties provided specific points of contact for officers to visit with community members on Aug. 6.

Acting Chief of Police Scott Eastman recognized and thanked those community members who dedicated time and effort to effectively coordinate block parties for their respectful neighborhoods. Five neighborhoods and two Mill Creek businesses took part in the 2019 event and were recognized before Council:

1.    Gabe Oh, Brighton

2.    Marta Street, Mill Creek Retirement Community

3.    Sandi Masterman, Auguston Condominiums

4.    Carrie Aleksandersen, Town Center Starbucks

5.    Darlene Weber, Mill Creek Library

6.    Mary Spalding, Amberleigh

7.    Shonda Reinikka, Mill Creek Springs     

National Night Out provides a great opportunity to bring parties together under positive circumstances. The 2020 National Night Out event is slated for Tuesday, August 4. Please learn more at
