2014 National Night Out LogoNational Night Out is an annual event held nationally on the first Tuesday in August. Neighbors come together from all over the city with local law enforcement agencies to raise crime and drug prevention awareness and to send a message to the criminals that the communities are organized and are fighting back to discourage criminal behavior.
