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. The 2018 celebration is slated for Tuesday, August 7, 2018.
As a show of support for NNO, Arvada residents are asked to join Americans across the country by turning on their porch lights to turn off crime, and have a block party with their neighbors.
If you’re closing your street, make sure to apply for a Block Party Permit three weeks in advance of the event. If you would like Arvada Fire or the Arvada Police Department to attend your block party, you can submit requests online. They will attend individual block party celebrations as available from 5:00 to 8:30pm.
“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.
