National Night Out Theme: Giving Crime and Drugs a Going Away Party!
This annual National Night Out event helps to increase Neighborhood Watch participation by promoting the work that police, fire, residents and businesses do together to make Orlando neighborhoods safer and better places to live. This is America’s night to give crime and drugs a going away party. Join the Orlando Police Department and host your very own block party that will help keep Orlando a safe City.
The Orlando Police Department (OPD) invites you to join us on October 3, 2017, for National Night Out. Let us help you host your very own National Night Out (NNO) block Party. Register with OPD, and you will receive your very own NNO Party Package, and receive free street closure and blockades. Each Block Party will also be visited by their City Commissioner and the officers who normally patrol the neighborhood. Many parties will also be visited by the Orlando Fire Departments (OFD), OPD Motorcycles and OPD Mounted Unit. Enter the NNO Theme Contest for a chance to have the NNO Caravan visit your party along with a $400 cash prize. The NNO Caravan will include Mayor Buddy Dyer, OPD Chief John Mina, OFD Chief Roderick Williams, McGruff the Crime Dog and Nat the NNO Knight.
Below you will find links to more information about hosting your own block party, registration links and a list of important events leading up to the big day.
