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 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Representatives from the Town of Windsor, The Windsor Police Department and Windsor Severance Fire Rescue 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. 

When is National Night Out?


National Night Out is held annually the first Tuesday in August. This year's National Night Out is Tuesday, August 1, 2017.
