National Night Out

NNO2015Logo_FC2015 National Night Out Recap

The 32nd Annual NNO events in Orlando were a great success.  The Crime Prevention Unit of the Orlando Police Department wanted to know how each neighborhood, church, apartment complex, recreation center and business in Orlando would help keep crime and drugs out of our City. By the end of the National Night Out Campaign, our great City had 95 neighborhoods, 25 churches, 13 apartment and condominium communities, 9 recreation centers and 180 businesses working with law enforcement to make National Night Out a success and keep crime and drugs off our blocks.
