National Night Out

National Night Out (NNO) is a great opportunity for citizens and law enforcement to partner against crime. We invite you to host an event on your block, meet with your neighbors and commit to helping law enforcement reduce crime in our community.

This year, NNO is on Tuesday, October 7, from 7 to 9 p.m. Neighborhoods must register before September 13. This annual event is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations and let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

During the event, neighborhoods 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 occur simultaneously throughout the city and nationwide.

This year’s NNO kickoff event will take place lakeside at the Mueller Airport Development on Saturday, October 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can join the National Night Out event by:

  • Getting all of your neighbors to turn on their porch lights
  • Organizing a block party or some type of neighborhood event
  • Registering online at nnoaustin.org.

For any questions, please contact Carol Welder.
