National Night Out
National Night Out is a series of nationwide celebrations held on the first Tuesday in August each year; in 2018, Tuesday, August 7. The purpose of National Night Out is to give neighbors an opportunity to get together in a setting close to home.
National Night Out is also an opportunity for deputies to interact with residents in a positive, relaxed and informal way. Deputies and residents often use NNO as an opportunity to communicate about neighborhood concerns and crime prevention tips.
National Night Out Events
There are many different types of NNO events - it all depends on the neighborhood. Some residents host block parties. Sometimes events are built around a barbecue, ice cream social or potluck dinner. Other residents like to plan their events in nearby parks and advertise it in their HOA newsletter ahead of time. Some simply gather in their cul-de-sac and socialize while their children play. Any gathering that gives neighbors a chance to step outside their homes and talk fits the bill!
Request Sheriff's Office Involvement
Representatives from the Sheriff's Office attend neighborhood events throughout the county to answer questions about law enforcement and share effective strategies for fighting crime in our neighborhoods. Deputy involvement depends on availability.
You may request a particular special unit or deputy, but due to the growing number of NNO events each year, we cannot guarantee that specific deputies will be available. To request Sheriff's Office attendance please call our Crime Prevention Deputy at 303-271-5807 or email the Crime Prevention unit
