National Night Out, an annual, nationwide Neighborhood Watch campaign, is held in early October (Texas only this year). This program promotes involvement in local crime and drug prevention activities, strengthens police-community partnerships, and encourages neighborhood camaraderie as part of our national efforts to let criminals know that America is united and dedicated to building a safer, more caring country. Along with the traditional “lights on” and front porch vigils, cities and towns across America celebrate NNO with a variety of events and activities such as: block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, visits from local police, and safety demonstrations.
National Night Out is held each year to encourage people throughout the nation to come outside and join their neighbors in giving neighborhood crime a “going away” party.
Texas is the only state for now that is celebrating this program during the month of October.Registration for 2012 NNO is closed!
