The National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and helps to build a sense of friendly company amongst neighbors. This in turn makes our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. We’ve rounded up the events we’ve found and encourage you all to join your neighbors and Law Enforcement Officers in your community.
