National Night Out

This year the 28th National Night Out (NNO) will be on Tuesday August 2nd.   My neighborhood has planned a get together and cookout.

Last year the NNO  citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide got together. In 2010, over 37 million people participated in National Night Out

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to:

  • Strengthen crime and drug prevention
  • Create support  and raise participation in  local anti-crime programs
  • Enhance neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

It is not too late to organize your own neighborhood event.
