Spend the Evening with Police

Atherton residents are asked to turn on their outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police at Holbrook-Palmer Park. 

Residents are encourage to come and have fun and use the time to discuss neighborhood issues with their local police and set neighborhood goals and Watch Programs.

Fun for the Whole Family

Residents are encouraged to join members of the Atherton Police Department, CHP and Menlo Park Fire District to help promote resident involvement in crime prevention and disaster preparedness, and have fun while doing it.

The event will include tug-of-war and sack races led by police personnel, prizes, balloon makers and face painters, sno cones and cotton candy, music, a jumpy house, and a BBQ. There will be informational booths to include the Atherton Disaster and Preparedness Team (ADAPT), CHP and the Atherton Police Department. And don't forget to stop by the Atherton Crime Prevention booth for crime prevention tips and plenty of children's handouts to include glow sticks, finger lights, temporary tattoos, stickers and much more.

The family-oriented event will be highlighted by the CHP emergency helicopter which will land in the grassy field of the Park for children to look at and take pictures in. Click here to view pictures of the helicopter landing in the Park this past March.
