It’s time to get to know your neighbors and celebrate National Night Out.
On Tuesday, August 5, Orlando residents will join 38 million people and 16,000 communities nationwide to participate in the 31st annual event. National Night Out uses block parties, cookouts and get-togethers to promote crime prevention, neighborhood camaraderie and police-community partnerships.
The theme for Orlando’s National Night Out events is “Taking Our Communities Back.” Let’s send a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are strong and united in the fight against crime.
Last year, Orlando’s participation in National Night Out was recognized as the top program in the country among cities our size by the National Association of Town Watch Groups.
We are proud to have active residents who care about their neighborhoods. I look forward to utilizing National Night Out to share crime prevention tips with our residents, and I encourage you to spend the evening of Tuesday, August 5 outside with your neighbors.
