National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors, law enforcement and first responders while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police, first responders and other partners together with neighbors under positive circumstances.
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August. 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.
Many agencies and organization plan to participate in this year’s event, including: the Pacific County Sheriff’s Office, the Pacific County Communications Center, the Pacific County Emergency Management Agency, the Raymond Police Department, the South Bend Police Department, the Raymond Fire Department, the South Bend Fire Department, the Crisis Support Network, the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, the Teen Advocacy Coalition, Community Watch/Neighborhood Watch, Community Emergency Response Team, and Pacific County Guns and Hoses. Please mark your calendars and stop by for a fun-filled evening!
