NNO2015 (93)

The Arlington Police Department invites you to participate in the 35th 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 2, 2018 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 2, 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 second 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.
