National Night Out (NNO) celebrations

The Durham community is invited to take part in observing America’s annual night out against crime.

Rep Your NNO Neighborhood Social Media Post(s)
Durham residents are asked to post favorite photos from a NNO neighborhood observance in Durham over the years. NNO enthusiasts who don’t have a photo can put on a NNO shirt, cap or hand fan from a previous NNO year to take a selfie to post. Or if a NNO enthusiast spots a NNO banner at a business or in a neighborhood during the month, he/she should take a photo or selfie to post. It’s important to use these hashtags to help chronicle Durham’s NNO engagement during October 2020:  
#NNOLetsGoTheDistanceDurham, #NNOBullCity, #BullCityStrong, and #NNO2020.

NNO Children’s Activities
Once a week during October, a different NNO activity page will be posted on DPD social media to engage elementary age residents. With parental assistance, children are encouraged to share their completed pages online using the celebration hashtags.
#NNOLetsGoTheDistanceDurham, #NNOBullCity, #BullCityStrong, and #NNO2020.
