National Association Of Attorneys General Recognizes August 1st As National Night Out

August 1, 2006

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Attorneys General throughout the country are encouraging residents to participate in the 23rd Annual National Night Out (NNO), a unique crime and drug prevention event on August 1, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW).

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Last year's National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from more than 10,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, more than 34 million people participated in NNO 2005.

While the traditional 'lights on' and front porch vigils remain a part of NNO, activities have expanded considerably over the years to include block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from police, festivals, neighborhood walks, safety fairs, contests, rallies and meetings.
