What is National Night Out?

Neighborhoods and cities across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits. National Night Out is always the first Tuesday in August. This year it will be on August 6.


National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-public partnerships to make our communities safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between residents and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
