National Night Out, a unique crime and prevention annual event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), takes place each year on the first Tuesday in August. This year, National Night Out will take place on Tuesday, August 6, 2013. All neighborhood organizations and neighborhood watch groups are encouraged to participate in this annual event.

Previous National Night Out events have involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, neighborhood organizations, neighborhood crime watch groups, and local officials from all over the City of Roanoke. The events are designed to:

  1. Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;

  2. Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;

  3. Strengthen neighborhood spirit; and

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

Along with traditional displays of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, City of Roanoke neighborhoods have participated in a variety of events over the years that have included block parties, cook outs, visits from local police, fire department and City officials, flashlight walks, contests, and youth programs. Participating in National Night Out is an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program that promotes neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our efforts in maintaining a safe community.

Please check back as a complete listing of activities taking place will be provided as organizations plan their events.
