National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhoods and police-community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are fighting back!
This year's event will be somewhat different, but we still want to find a way to safely demonstrate our commitment to reducing crime and violence in our community. Even though our country is still dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making efforts to continue with National Night but in a safe manner. NNO will be held on Tuesday, October 5, 2021 and the theme is "Lights On At Home" which is our way of encouraging all city residents to continue practicing social distancing but still being able to participate in NNO. City police, fire, councilmembers and city staff will "cruise" through neighborhoods that choose to partake. We would love to see your involvement all while remaining vigilant against the spread of COVID, by seeing you in your driveway or on your front porch as we cruise. National Night Out's humble beginnings started by having neighbors turning their porch lights on to show solidarity with the police and their crime prevention initiatives.
