National Night Out

/National Night Out

National Night Out 2017 is Tuesday, August 1st

Who is Involved?

National Night Out involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials.

Purpose

The purpose of National Night Out is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness. Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs. This annual event strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

How does it work?

Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, cities, neighborhoods ‘celebrate’ NNO with a variety of events and activities such as: block parties, cookouts, visits from local police, sheriff departments and community leaders, parades, exhibits, flashlight walks, contests, and youth programs.

NNO has proven to be an effective and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer community.

 If your neighborhood would like to participate, please contact your precinct Crime Prevention Officer, their contact information can be found in the right-hand column of this page!
