2017 National Night Out
Register Your Neighborhood Today!
On the first Tuesday in August, we gather with citizens, community organizations and City Leaders to celebrate National Night Out. If you and your neighbors are planning National Night Out activities, you can register to participate in the August 1, 2017, event.
National Night Out (NNO) is an annual community event designed to strengthen police/community relationships and generate support for anti-crime programs.
In 2016, the NNO campaign included citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from more than 16,124 communities in all 50 states, U.S. territories,Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, more than 37.8 million people participated in the program. The Lakeland Police Department registered 87 parties throughout the community, with approximately 6500 people attending these.
Neighborhood block parties are an ideal way for neighbors to get to know each other. Along with block parties, displays of outdoor lights and front-porch gatherings, neighborhoods and communities celebrate National Night Out with a variety of activities:
• Visits from local police, fire departments and commission members
• Youth activities
