    When: Tuesday, August 02, 2016 All Day

    Where: Your Neighborhood


    There are many different types of National Night Out events – it all depends on the neighborhood. Some residents host block parties. Sometimes events are built around a barbecue, ice cream social or potluck dinner. Other residents like to plan their events in nearby parks and advertise it in their HOA newsletter ahead of time. Some simply gather in their cul-de-sac and socialize while their children play. Any gathering that gives neighbors a chance to step outside their homes and talk fits the bill!


    Visit the National Night Out website for ideas about activities you can organize, photos from NNO activities around the nation, and other great tips on making your community strong and safe.


    National Night Out is a series of nationwide celebrations held on the first Tuesday in August each year. The purpose of National Night Out is to give neighbors an opportunity to get together in a setting close to home. Of the many crime prevention strategies out there, familiarity and communication among neighbors ranks among the most effective.


    National Night Out is also an opportunity for deputies to interact with residents in a positive, relaxed and informal way. Deputies and residents often use NNO as an opportunity to communicate about neighborhood concerns and crime prevention tips. To schedule a deputy to stop by your gathering please call 303-271-5807 or email crimeprevention@jeffco.us.
