NATIONAL NIGHT OUT DAY
National Night Out Day is observed annually on the first Tuesday in August. It is a community police awareness-raising event in the United States.
National Night Out was created to increase awareness about police programs in communities.
Some of these programs include:
- Drug prevention
- Town watch
- Neighborhood watch
- Other anti=watch
One of the largest National Night Out events is on the west side of Columbus, Ohio. The Ogden Block Watch in Columbus organizes one of the largest festivals which include live music, food and entertainment.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Events around the country are normally organized by block watches, not-for-profit organizations, companies and police departments. These events can be as simple as backyard barbecues or as large as full-blown festivals. Join in a local National Night Out event near you. Post on social media using #NationalNightOutDay.
National Night Out has been celebrated since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
