What is National Night Out?
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer, better place to live.
This national program encourages citizens to have a block party, meet neighbors and help fight crime in their area. Similar to a neighborhood watch program, a block captain organizes his/her neighborhood and has an ice cream social, BBQ, corn roast or any type of event they want to plan for that evening. Events usually run between the hours of 4:30pm to 8:30pm in the evening.
Representatives from the Town of Windsor, The Windsor Police Department and Windsor - Severance Fire District will visit each location and meet the residents of the neighborhood to discuss concerns, answer questions and get acquainted in a non-formal setting. Cul de sacs may be blocked off for this event but not through streets. This is a great way to get to know your neighbors and become familiar with your neighborhood.
When is National Night Out?
