National Night Out

About National Night Out

National Night Out is commonly called “America’s Night Out Against Crime.” This nationwide event is designed to heighten drug prevention and crime awareness, generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships. Last year, nearly 50 Naperville neighborhoods participated.

During the event, residents in neighborhoods throughout Naperville and across the nation are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters and other City personnel. Events such as cookouts, block parties and neighborhood walks will all occur simultaneously throughout Naperville and nationwide.

Neighborhood National Night Out Events

Neighborhoods throughout Naperville will next join communities nationwide and participate in National Night Out in August 2020. This is a great opportunity to get together with your neighbors to strengthen your community and to promote positive police-community partnerships. Members of the Naperville Police, Park District Police, Naperville Fire, Public Works, Animal Control, Electric and Water Utility departments will visit many of the registered events. Please check back next year for additional details.
