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.

Celebrate NNO in Your Neighborhood

Join Americans across the country showing support for strong communities by turning ON your porch lights to turn OFF crime. Show support for YOUR neighborhood and have a block party with your neighbors!

  • Do you need a block party permit to host an NNO block party?

    • You only need a block party permit for your neighborhood block party if you are closing your street (or having the party in a public park). Please note: block party permit applications MUST be submitted NO LATER than two weeks prior to the event. If you are planning to hold your event on Tuesday, Aug. 3, the window for block party permits has closed; however, you are encouraged to hold a block party in your neighborhood for NNO, but your streets must remain open.

Invite the Arvada Police/City Leadership

If you would like the Arvada Police Department or City leadership to attend your block party, please use this form: National Night Out - Request.

Invite Arvada Fire

The Arvada Fire Protection District arranges NNO visits from Arvada Fire members. If you would like Arvada Fire to attend your block party, submit an online request directly through them at: Submit an AFPD Event Request.
