National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that teams police with community and neighborhoods to make our homes 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 and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
