A Going Away Party For Crime in Orlando

The 29th Annual National Night Out is Tuesday, August 7th, 2012 throughout neighborhoods in the City of Orlando. The Kick Off Party is Monday, August 6, 2012 at 5:30pm at the Target at SODO (120 West Grant Street). You can participate by hosting your own block party. 

National Night Out is an annual event that helps build stronger, safer communities by giving crime a going away party. The event is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in local anticrime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are working together to keep crime out.

Last year, the City of Orlando was ranked first place in the country for our National Night efforts among population centers of 100,000-299,000 including the amount of neighborhood participation and law enforcement involvement.  Orlando has placed in the top winning categories for the last 17 years.
