A Police officer speaking to citizens.

What is National Night Out?

Neighborhoods throughout Lakewood are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 36th Annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out is an annual community building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer and more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

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.
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

When is National Night Out?

On Tuesday, Aug. 3, residents in neighborhoods throughout Lakewood 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 events.
