National Night Out

What is National Night Out?

National Night Out (NNO) is a community effort to reduce crime and the fear of crime in our neighborhoods through relationship-building. This annual national celebration is held the first Tuesday in August. “National Night Out is an opportunity for our officers to meet and interact with residents in a relaxed, informal way, while discussing citizen concerns and ways to prevent crime as a community,” said Commander DeAndrea of the Arvada Police Department.
