National Night Out is “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” according to the organization’s web site. This nationally-recognized event is designed to stamp out criminal and drug activities in the community by:

– Heightening crime and drug prevention awareness;
– Generating support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
– Strengthening  neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
– Sending  a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
