National Night Out (NNO) is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
National Night Out was introduced in August 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch Inc. The event involved 2.5 million across 400 communities in 23 states.
In the almost 40 years since its inception, National Night Out has become a nation-wide celebration of first responders throughout the United States.
“National Night Out triumphs over a culture that isolates us from each other and allows us to rediscover our own communities.”
Kay Bailey Hutchison, Senator
This year, the Harlingen Police Department is celebrating National Night Out on August 6, 2019, at Lon C. Hill Park in Harlingen, TX.
This event is free to the public and includes food, fun, educational information on safety for kids.
