NNO Registration Ends July 9; Observance is Tuesday, August 7
DURHAM, N.C. - Registration is underway for Durham’s observance of National Night Out (NNO), America’s Night Out Against Crime, on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. Neighborhoods, agencies and businesses are encouraged to support the celebration by organizing or sponsoring a NNO event or promotion. The evening of August 7 residents are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors, law enforcement and public safety partners. Neighborhoods typically host events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and anti-crime campaigns. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the national observance.
NNO is a collaborative effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, and neighborhood unity. The National Association of Town Watch (NATW), which spearheads the observance, anticipates NNO 2018 will involve 16,377 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world.
Durham Police Department’s NNO registration deadline is Monday, July 9, 2018. For registration and observance information, go to www.durhampolice.com and click the 2018 NNO logo. Local NNO registrations are separate from registrations with NATW.
