Own the Night, Own Your Community
National Night Out is a designated evening when communities across America come
together to take a stand against crime, drugs and disorder in their neighborhoods.
This year, August 6th, is National Night Out (NNO) and the
Glendale Police Department will
again be partnering with members of the community to affirm our conviction against
crime and disorder.
In the spirit of neighborhoods uniting toward a common goal, the police department
is looking for individuals from across town who will organize an event in their
neighborhood. It does not have to be elaborate or difficult to plan. While we have
had large events in the past, local events that involve more neighbors are effective
in getting this message out and forming community bonds.
National Night Out has grown from an annual single event to multiple events
throughout the city, touching multiple neighborhoods and many residents. Last
year was our biggest, with a total of 44 events citywide! If there isn’t an event
in your neighborhood, please consider coordinating one. We will tell you how!
What to Expect
A potluck dinner or small barbeque may be in order, and if not, consider an after-dinner
gathering at a neighbor’s house or the local park. Leaving porch lights on and having
a neighborhood walk are traditions of National Night Out. These events will be planned
by the neighborhoods themselves, with the support and encouragement of the police
