The Urbandale Police Department encourages neighborhood block parties. This is an opportunity for residents to get together with their neighbors and get to know each other better.
We encourage block parties as part of our annual National Night Out celebration. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
