National Night Out

National Night Out originates back to 1984 when the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada decided to bring awareness to community safety across the country.  The event is always held the first Tuesday of August but, because of the hot weather, Texas has the option to use an alternate date.

Matt Peskin, NATW’s Executive Director, first introduced National Night Out in 1984.  That year,  nearly 2.5 million Americans participated across 400 communities in 23 states.  To date, over 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide have become involved in NNO.

National Night Out is dedicated to bringing awareness to police programs in communities.   Some programs being spotlighted are ones such as drug prevention, town watch/Neighborhood Watch, and other anti-crime efforts.  Another new topic is safe driving.  Now that mostly everyone owns a smart phone, it is easy to be tempted to text and drive.  This new trend is causing accidents all over the country and is bringing danger to your neighborhood.

The main event of NNO is the  “lights on” campaign.  The “lights on” campaign encourages community members to leave their porch lights on and bring awareness to neighborhood safety.  These symbolic front porch vigils now have turned into celebrations across America including block parties, cookouts, parades, safety demonstrations and seminars.  The three most popular programs belong to San Antonio, TX,  Minneapolis, MN, and Austin, TX.  All of which have had over 300,000 attendees.  Don’t see your city there?  That’s okay, you still have a chance next year to get involved and win one of the ten awards National Night Out gives to the top cities participating.

ePromos can help your community celebrate and raise awareness about the National Night Out with promotional items centered around community safety and police appreciation.
