National Night Out

About National Night Out
National Night Out is a night when neighborhoods host block parties, get to know each other, have fun, and visit with local law enforcement.

National Night Out began in 1984 as an effort to promote crime prevention, build community partnerships, connect neighbors, and strengthen neighborhood ties.  Neighbors who know each other can help make their neighborhood safer year round. Millions of people and thousands of communities participate each year.

How it Works
