National Night Out
On the first Tuesday night of every August, neighborhoods across the nation join forces with thousands of communities for the Annual National Night Out (NNO) crime, drug, and gang awareness event. Sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) this annual event involves over 38 million neighbors in 16,000 communities in 50 states, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. 202
will mark the 38th year for this event!
