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. Our events were unfortunately canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but in 2019, 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

Tuesday, Aug. 3, 5-8 p.m.

Neighborhoods throughout Naperville will join communities nationwide and participate in the City’s 25th annual National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 3, from 5 to 8 p.m. This is a great opportunity to get together with your neighbors to strengthen your community and to promote positive police-community partnerships. 

Neighborhood registration is free and gives City representatives an opportunity to attend local events as time and circumstances permit. 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 register by July 16, 2021.

Donation Drive

The City of Naperville has partnered with DuPage Senior Citizens Council. Neighborhoods are encouraged to conduct a donation drive for this worthy cause in conjunction with their National Night Out event. A donation jar will be provided, and online donations are accepted.

The DuPage Senior Citizens Council (DSCC) initiates, delivers, monitors, and coordinates services that promote the ability of older persons to live their lives in dignity throughout DuPage and nearby counties. The issues our seniors face – like hunger, loneliness and isolation – are often hidden in plain sight. Part of DSCC’s mission is to educate others on these issues and to generate the awareness and support needed to bring about real solutions.

While the DuPage Citizens Council is best known for providing seniors with nutritious meals with their “meals on wheels” program, they provide other valuable resources for seniors such as: well-being checks, health & wellness resources, yard clean ups, minor repairs, contractor referrals, pet assistance, friendly visits and phone calls.

Because of COVID-19, DuPage Senior Citizens Council is asking for monetary donations or gift card donations. Suggested gift cards are:

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Jewel-Osco
  • Mariano’s
  • Walgreens
  • CVS
  • Any grocery store or pharmacy

To make monetary donations, please visit www.dupageseniorcouncil.org/donations-gift/ or call (630) 620-0804.
