The National Night Out campaign involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations, and local officials from 9,500 communities from all 50 states, US territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
National Night Out is designed to:
– Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
– Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs
– Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
– Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
The theme of the Fourth District’s National Night Out celebration is “Inspiring Our Youth to be Productive Citizens.” Activities include a youth talent show, music, food, and giveaways.
