Hosting a Party

National Night Out was first celebrated in August of 1984 as a community-building campaign that promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Neighborhoods host block parties, visits from emergency services and more. Today, neighbors in 16,000 communities across the nation participate in National Night Out.
