Milpitas participated in on Thursday evening at 25 locations throughout the city. Elected officials, commissioners, public safety officers came to talk about crime prevention and emergency resources available.

"The thing is people looking out for each other," said county supervisor Dave Cortese. "These events help keep the neighborhood close together."

"It's kind of a sense of community," said Raj Khanna, who joined his neighbors on Crater Lake Avenue and Everglades Drive for a potluck.

Officer Trishell Young Orth asked residents to keep a watchful eye out for residential burglars who come to Milpitas during the day, and ring doorbells to check if anyone is at home. If the door opens they make up a name and ask for someone who doesn't live there.

"That's a clue," she said. "Call us. That's suspicious." Take notes and write down the description of the suspect and the car.
