Get ready to celebrate at the next National Night Out in August 2018!
On Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018 from 6pm to 9pm, neighborhoods throughout Longmont are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the "35th Annual National Night Out" (NNO) crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out is sponsored by the City of Longmont Public Safety Department and Longmont Community and Neighborhood Resources.
National Night Out is designed to:
- Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
- Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
- Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
NNO can be part of an on-going Neighborhood Watch (NW) activities or even a great way to get a Neighborhood Watch program started. NW programs help neighbors work together as a true community - neighbor looking out for neighbor to make everyone's quality of life better and help alleviate crime.
From 6-9 pm on August 7 residents in neighborhoods throughout Longmont are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors. Many neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and other Neighborhood Watch event.
National Night Out is a great way to build neighborhood unity and strengthen community camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. Neighbors meet neighbors and develop stronger community ties.
On August 7th, we invite Longmont neighborhoods to join forces to "Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs A Going Away Party" which remains the national theme.
Please email or call (303) 774-4440 for further questions on the Neighborhood Night Out program.
