National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Evans Police Department.

National Night Out is designed to:

-Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.

-Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts.

-Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships.

-Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and increasingly aware of their surroundings.

Participating neighborhoods nationwide are asked to turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors, citizens, and police. Neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of events ranging from small potlucks and barbeques to large block parties. Some additional event ideas include, but are not limited to, ice cream socials, games, contests, discussing neighborhood issues, setting neighborhood goals, beautifying a common area, discussing or planning a Neighborhood Watch Program. It’s up to you – be creative, have fun and celebrate with your neighbors!

Registration is free, so register your neighborhood for this year’s event today. You do NOT have to be a current Neighborhood Watch neighborhood to participate. National Night Out is for everyone!
