National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community
partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
WHEN & WHERE?
The National Night Out program culminates annually on
the first Tuesday of August. Note: Texas and a select few
areas celebrate the first Tuesday of October.
Neighbors participate across thousands of communities
from all 50 states, United States territories, Canadian
cities, and military bases worldwide.
… a chance to bring neighborhoods together with the men & women who protect them. The safety of our communities depend on both law enforcement and the citizens they serve, and tonight’s events will enhance that cooperation.Joe BidenVice President
… the best way to prevent crime is to know your neighbors & your surroundings. National Night Out triumphs over a culture that isolates us from each other and allows us to rediscover our own communities.Kay Bailey HutchisonSenator
… preventing and solving crime is a community effort. National Night Out is an excellent program that helps the department build relationships with citizens and create safer neighborhoods. This is one of the events we look forward to each year.Chief George TurnerAtlanta Police Department
There are no financial barriers to participating in National Night Out. That has always been our commitment, but, in today’s difficult economy, it’s worth highlighting.
We're thoughtful about how every dollar is spent, working year-round to help city governments, police departments and grassroots organizers make their National Night Out events successful and their community a safer, better place to live.
