National Night Out Overview

All city National Night Out events are posted on the
Calendar of Events as they are scheduled by the city's neighborhood organizations and watch groups. These events are designed to:
  1. Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs
  2. Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  3. Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
  4. Strengthen neighborhood spirit
Along with traditional displays of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, city neighborhoods have participated in a variety of events over the years that have included block parties, cook outs, visits from local police, fire department and city officials, flashlight walks, contests, and youth programs.

Participating in National Night Out is an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program that promotes neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our efforts in maintaining a safe community.
