The Kick Off Car-A-Van is an annual event that happens the week before National Night Out that includes a fun drive through the streets of Hayward with a police escort that will culminate at a TBD location.

Hayward Neighborhood Alert, in partnership with the Hayward Police Department, establishes Neighborhood Watch Groups, educating and supporting them in crime prevention and safety to improve the quality of life in the City of Hayward.

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.
