National Night Out is America's Night Out Against Crime!
The 37th Annual National Night Out (NNO), a unique crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), was held Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
HPD is excited to release a NNO 2020 Virtual Tour Video of Harrisonburg neighborhoods that have traditionally held events to celebrate safe and strong communities.
The City of Harrisonburg has been awarded 25th place in the United States for their efforts in 2019 for the category of 50,000-100,000 population.
Previous year's National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide.
National Night Out is designed to:
- Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
- Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs
- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
- Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
