Welcome to National Night Out 2016

National Night Out
Neighborhoods are encouraged to support National Night Out with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, and/or planning activities such as a cook-out or block party, hosting activities for kids and ice-breaker games for adults. This exciting event allows residents the opportunity to promote police-community partnerships; crime, drug and violence prevention; public safety; and neighborhood unity, sending a message to criminals that the neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime. According to NATW, last year's event was the largest ever that involved 37 million people in 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide.
What is National Night Out?
NATIONAL NIGHT OUT (NNO) is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participate in, local anti-crime programs; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. 
When Is It?
Nationally, NNO will be observed on Tuesday, August 2, 2016, and in Texas again on October 4, 2016. To allow ample time and daylight, City leaders will be visiting participating neighborhoods on Tuesday, August 2, 2016. In addition, the City of Lancaster will be hosting a centralized, community-wide National Night Out event on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at the Lancaster Public Safety Building, 1650 N. Dallas Ave.
