National Night Out Tuesday, August 7, 2018
|Gather your neighbors and organize a block-party to kick-off the end of summer and celebrate National Night Out with the Erie Police Department.|
In 2018 the Erie Police Department will be partnering with the Erie Parks & Rec Department to host a single community event at the Erie Community Park on Tuesday, August 7, 2018 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. neighborhoods are still encouraged to organize and host their own block parties and are able to stop by the Erie Community Park to visit the police cars and fire trucks as well as other vendors who will be participating.
Purpose of National Night OutNNO is designed to raise awareness of crime and drug prevention efforts, generate support for local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and watching out for each other.
NNO can be part of ongoing Neighborhood Watch activities or even a great way to get a Neighborhood Watch Program started. Neighborhood Watch programs help neighbors work together to make everyone's quality of life better and lessen crime.
During NNO, Erie residents will lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors. Many local neighborhoods are planning a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, contests and youth activities. National Night Out can be as simple as bringing your lawn chairs out front and visiting with neighbors. Ice cream is optional!
