National Night Out is Tonight — Meet Neighbors and Police in the Community

August 1, 2017

Tonight is National Night Out (NNO), an annual event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. It takes place on the first Tuesday in August annually. Each year, the Metropolitan Police Department actively participates in National Night Out by rallying community members throughout the District of Columbia to join with neighbors and police officers in their PSAs to be a part of this annual event. Each police district organizes a location to assemble. Park View is split between the Fourth District and Third District, though the Third District event is closest to attend.

The National Night Out campaign involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from 9,500 communities from all 50 states, US territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. The details and flyer below are for the Third District event.

When:  Tuesday, August 1, 2017
