National Night Out

National Night Out (NNO), an annual, nationwide neighborhood watch campaign. The program promotes involvement in local crime and drug prevention activities, strengthens police-community partnerships and encourages neighborhood camaraderie as part of our national efforts to let criminals know that America is united and dedicated to building a safer, more caring country.

 The 2019 National Night Out is scheduled for Oct. 1.

Along with the traditional “lights on” and front porch vigils, cities and towns across America celebrate NNO with a variety of events and activities such as:

  • Block parties
  • Cookouts
  • Flashlight walks
  • Parades
  • Safety demonstrations
  • Visits from local police

A "Going Away Party" for Crime

National Night Out is held each year to encourage people throughout the nation to come outside and join their neighbors in giving neighborhood crime a “going away” party. Texas is the only state for now that is celebrating this program during the month of October.

Schedule and Registration

Registration is free and gives police and other city representatives an opportunity to attend local events as time and circumstances permit. You do not have to be a current Neighborhood Watch neighborhood to participate. National Night Out is for everyone! Register now and begin planning your event as soon as possible. This event will take place regardless of rain, so be sure to plan accordingly.

Once your neighborhood is registered we will put you on our list of event sites to visit during the evening. Neighborhoods must register by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24 to ensure representatives will stop by. The Irving Police Department makes every effort to visit as many events as possible, but it can't visit if you don't register.
