Who is Involved?
National Night Out involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials.
The purpose of National Night Out is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and to generate support for or participation in local anti-crime programs. This annual event strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and sends a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
How does it work?
Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, cities and neighborhoods “celebrate” NNO with a variety of events and activities, such as block parties, cookouts, visits from local law enforcement 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.
