National Night Out
National Award Winner
Orlando was once again selected as a National Award Winner for its outstanding
participation in the “26th Annual National Night Out” (NNO) crime, drug and
violence prevention program. Orlando achieved a third place ranking in Category
2 for cities with a population of 100,000 – 299,000 competing against hundreds
of other large cities such as Modesto, California and St. Paul, Minnesota which
have a strong historical participation in Neighborhood Watch.
This year’s event involved 36.7 million people in 14,625 communities from all 50
states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide. Orlando had a record
breaking 70 parties, to include NNO Goes to Church and NNO Goes to Summer Camp.
The National Association of Town Watch has extended their congratulations to the
Orlando Police Department for being selected among the nation’s best.
