National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes policecommunity partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. It is our opportunity to pass on information to you about anti-crime programs and drug prevention awareness. The gatherings tell criminals that the neighborhoods are organized and are fighting back.
