National Night Out is an annual event, held the 1st Tuesday of August. The event is designed to
(1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
(2) Generate support for local anti-crime programs;
(3) Promote neighborhood pride and police-community partnerships; and
(4) Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
National Night Out is unique because participating neighborhoods host block parties with activities including: potlucks, karaoke, face painting, raffles, police car rides and an appearance from Scruff McGruff.
