National Night Out (NNO) is the premiere celebration of the Neighborhood Watch Program. This year marks the 35th anniversary of police-community
partnership recognition across the nation and in U.S. territories and military installations worldwide. This is also the 35th year of the Richardson Police Department’s local Neighborhood Watch program, a community-based, self-help program that empowers residents to take control of their neighborhoods in an effort to discourage criminal activity. The goal of both programs is to enhance the quality of life for people within their own communities.
This is the 29th year of NNO participation by the City of Richardson, facilitated by the Richardson Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit.
The main event takes place Tuesday, Oct. 2 from 6-8 p.m. Officers, dignitaries and VIPs will ride out to visit residents at their neighborhood block parties all over the City of Richardson to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. NNO showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and resident involvement in our fight to build a safer nation.
