National Night Out
WHAT IS NATIONAL NIGHT OUT?
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August. Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.
“Nassau County is one of the safest places in the country and that is largely due to the strength of our police-community relationships. National Night Out is an important annual event that brings members of law enforcement and the community together. By building bridges with the community, we can reduce crime, prevent drug abuse and make Nassau County a better place to live and work.”
- Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas
