What is National Night Out?

Neighbors from across the United States host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts, and various other community events to send a message that our community is fighting back against crime.

National Night Out is an excellent opportunity for you and your neighbors to socialize, renew acquaintances, welcome new neighbors, and join fellow citizens in our community's fight against crime. Come together to strengthen neighborhoods and improve police-community partnerships to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

Locally, National Night Out is sponsored by the Albuquerque Police Department, the Crime Prevention Unit, and the Office of Neighborhood Coordination.
