National Night Out (NNO) is designed to bring residents, law enforcement agencies, community groups and businesses together to celebrate crime prevention awareness while sending a message that crime will not be tolerated in our community.
It all started several years ago. In 1984, 400 communities in 23 states participated in National Night Out (NNO) with 2.5 million Americans taking part. The seed had been planted and grew each year. Last year, over 37 million people worldwide celebrated the event!
This year, hundreds of Everett residents will participate in National Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday, Aug. 6th!
Consider hosting or helping to organize your neighbors and friends and get together in small groups in your neighborhood. Invite neighbors you may not know - meet new people!
The Everett Police Department and Office of Neighborhoods are working closely with community groups to support their plans for neighborhood based events. Band together with your neighbors and to let criminals know that crime won’t be tolerated in Everett!
We want to support your event and make sure that City of Everett staff are aware of your NNO gathering. Police officers can drop by, visit and answer questions about basic crime prevention practices. Other city departments who offer NNO site visits include the Everett Fire Department, Everett Emergency Management (CERT), Everett Transit and others. Contact Wendy McClure, Office of Neighborhoods to notify us about your plans and submit your requests for city visits. 425 257-8717 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We will post information in July about community events. Check the list often as times and other information will be added.
