National Night Out

National Night Out

National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event hosted by the Parker Police Department and other police agencies across the country to enhance the partnership between citizens, businesses and law enforcement communities.  This important neighborhood network helps to make Parker an even safer place to live, work and raise our families.

Please watch for details to be shared in the summer of 2022 for our next National Night Out!

About the Program

In 1984, the introduction of National Night Out, "America's Night Out Against Crime", began as an effort 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 organizing and fighting back

National Night Out now involves more than 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide.

Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.
