NNO2015 (93)

The Arlington Police Department invites you to participate in the 33rd annual National Night Out (NNO) crime, drug, and violence prevention program sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW). The event will be held on the evening of Tuesday, October 4, 2016 and is expected to involve hundreds of Arlington residents and millions across the country.

The purpose of National Night Out is to build strong partnerships between the police and communities and to promote crime awareness programs such as Neighborhood Community Watch groups. According to NATW, last year’s event was the largest ever that involved 37 million people in 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide.

NNO-Neighborhood-GroupOn October 4th, residents are encouraged to turn on their porch lights and gather with their neighbors to show unity against criminal activity.  Registered communities may be visited by public service personnel such as those from police, fire, and emergency medical services.

The City of Arlington has participated in National Night Out for over 20 years. This past year, the City of Arlington ranked 3rd among the largest cities in the nation. Without your help, NNO would not be possible. If you would like to help the City of Arlington take a proactive stance against crime and compete for another national award, please register for National Night Out in your community.

2016 National Night Out Project365

Project365 is a program to extend the efforts of crime prevention, police-community partnership and neighborhood camaraderie beyond National Night Out. Arlington’s Project365 is focusing on Operation Identification.   Operation Identification allows law enforcement to detect, identify, and return stolen or lost property to its rightful owner. The Operation Identification involves marking or engraving property with an identifying number and displaying a window decal to discourage burglary and theft.

NNO2015 (92) - CopyThe Arlington Police Department will be giving out NNO party packages to communities with at least 5 households that mark or engrave their property and log the information on the identification form.  We have attached a form that you can use or you can develop a form that works for you.  (Arlington Police Department will not keep the forms)  Communities/Registered parties must be registered for Arlington NNO prior to qualifying for NNO party package (supplies limited).  A representative from your community must show 5 households that have logged their property to receive a party package.  The completed Operation Identification forms can be shown to a representative of the Crime Prevention office during  Aug. 1 – Sept. 2 at 620 West Division St.
