National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event that is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Woodland Police Department.
This year is the 37th anniversary of this event with over 38 million people across the country expected to participate.
National Night Out is designed to:
Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts
Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police and community partnerships
Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
Participating neighborhoods nationwide are asked to turn on outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and public safety officials. Neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of events ranging from small potlucks and BBQs to large block parties. Some additional event ideas include, but are not limited to, ice cream socials, food or clothing donations, beautify a common area, discuss or plan a Neighborhood Watch Program. It’s up to you - be creative, have fun and celebrate your neighborhood!
Registration is due on or before Tuesday, September 29, 2020.
