Annual National Night Out

Los Angeles: On Tuesday, August 7, 2007 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Los Angeles Police Department, the National Association of Town Watch, and communities around the nation will participate in "National Night Out."

In 1984, the National Association of Town Watch introduced the idea of National Night Out to Promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie.

Traditionally, "light on" and front porch vigils have been ways to participate in the annual event, however, activities have expanded to include block parties, cookouts, parades, police stations open houses, festivals, neighborhood walks, safety fairs, contests, rallies and meetings.

Attached is a matrix of LAPD sponsored activities associated with National Night Out.
