Event Description

The "30th Annual National Night Out" (NNO), a unique crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), has been scheduled for Tuesday, August 6, 2013. We cordially invite you and your community to be a part of our NIGHT OUT 2013 team.

Last year's National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, over 37 million people participated in National Night Out 2012.

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

NATW and National Night Out.

Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, cities, towns and neighborhoods 'celebrate' NNO with a variety of events and activities such as:

  • block parties,
  • cookouts,
  • visits from local police and sheriff departments
  • parades, exhibits,
  • flashlight walks,
  • contests, and
  • youth programs.

NNO has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer nation. Plus, the benefits your community will derive from NNO will most certainly extend well beyond the one night.

The official 2013 NNO Registration form is available on this site. Simply complete the online form and submit it. (Note: There is no cost to register or participate!)

Once registered, coordinators receive an ORGANIZATIONAL KIT filled with 'how-to' materials such as:

  • promotional ideas
  • guidelines
  • tips
  • questions and answers
  • camera-ready art
  • sample news releases and proclamations

You will also receive NNO "Updates" during the period leading up to the event. Plus, you'll receive information on "Project 365" - a unique component to the National Night Out campaign.

Don't delay. Be sure your community is part of the nation's largest annual crime/drug prevention event.

Organize a Block Party for your Neighbors.
