National Night Out

Program Overview

National Night Out (NNO) is a community police partnership that aims to:
  • Generate support and participation in local anti-crime programs,
  • Heighten crime prevention awareness,
  • Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are fighting back, and
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit.
NNO provides an excellent opportunity to meet and get to know your elected and city officials, fire fighters, local police officers, and neighbors.
