National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event hosted by the Parker Police Department and other police agencies across the country to enhance the partnership between citizens, businesses and law enforcement communities. This important neighborhood network helps to make Parker an even safer place to live, work and raise our families.
To help members of our community get to know one another, we are asking neighborhoods to host block parties. The exciting change we’ve made this year is that we’ve moved the event to a Saturday evening to make planning easier for neighbors. The event will take place on Saturday, July 31st from 6:30-8:30pm. Parker Police Department staff, including the SWAT team, mounted patrol, CSI, patrol and more, will visit the various parties throughout town to help our community celebrate. Community members will have the chance to ask questions and take a peek at some of the specialized vehicles and equipment that are critical to ensure public safety.
Please complete your registration before July 21, so department members can be scheduled to attend your special celebration. If you have questions, please contact Bri Rock, Community Outreach Coordinator, at Brock@parkeronline.org.
About the Program
In 1984, the introduction of National Night Out, "America's Night Out Against Crime", began as an effort to:
Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts
Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organizing and fighting back
National Night Out now involves more than 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide.
Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.
