NEVER HEARD OF NATIONAL NIGHT OUT?
National Night Out is observed annually on the first Tuesday in August. This year it is on August 6th. This night focuses on the community and raising awareness in the United States. Promoting police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer.
The National Association of Town Watch sponsors National Night Out in the United States and Canada. Although the origin dates back to the early 1970s the day has been celebrated since 1984.
These communities assist local law enforcement as extra eyes and ears while out engaging their neighbors and neighboring businesses. As extra pairs of eyes all over communities, these neighbors can assist local law enforcement to be more aware of the goings-on in communities.
