National Night Out is designed to:
-Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
-Generate support and participation in crime efforts
-Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations
-Let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
During the event, residents in neighborhoods throughout Austin and across the nation are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside
with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters and EMS paramedics. Events such as cookouts, block parties and neighborhood walks will all occur simultaneously throughout the city and nationwide.
Please come out and take a walk and meet some neighbors. We don’t have any planned events this year but some neighbors will be out in their driveways to meet new neighbors.
