National Night Out Tuesday, August 1, 2017
|Gather your neighbors and organize a block-party to kick-off the end of summer and celebrate National Night Out with the Erie Police Department. Erie Police Officers and other safety personnel will make an effort to visit all registered block parties with police cruisers and firetrucks!|
A 2017 NNO planning kit is available to help Erie residents jump start local activities.
Register Your Neighborhood's Block Party
Please email or call (303) 926-2800 to get a planning kit, register your party and to learn how to start your own Neighborhood Watch. Registered events will have a scheduled Erie Police Officer visit their event.
Purpose of National Night OutNNO is designed to raise awareness of crime and drug prevention efforts, generate support for local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and watching out for each other.
NNO can be part of ongoing Neighborhood Watch activities or even a great way to get a Neighborhood Watch Program started. Neighborhood Watch programs help neighbors work together to make everyone's quality of life better and lessen crime.
During NNO, Erie residents will lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors. Many local neighborhoods are planning a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, contests and youth activities. National Night Out can be as simple as bringing your lawn chairs out front and visiting with neighbors. Ice cream is optional!
