Celebrating Community-Police Partnerships on Tuesday, August 6

2024 National Night Out LogoNational Night Out (NNO) is an annual community-building event in the United States, held on the first Tuesday of August in cities across the country. 

The event is designed to raise awareness about police programs such as the Neighborhood Watch Program and other crime prevention and safety initiatives.

How does it work? Community members host an event where neighbors can connect, mingle, and strengthen community bonds. We'll send police personnel and other public safety professionals to visit your party – say hello, have conversations, provide resources, and bring some swag!

What is a neighborhood event? Neighborhood events can range from simple backyard cookouts to block parties – it's up to you!Click to open PDF

Backpack Drive: Consider collecting backpacks at your event to help provide youth in-need with backpacks for the upcoming school year. 

Ready to host an event? Here's what's next: Register your party.
It is our goal to have teams visit every registered neighborhood event. However, depending on emergency calls for service that evening, we may not be able to guarantee the participation of a uniformed officer.
