National Night Out Against Crime
National Night Out Against Crime

National Night Out "Against Crime" began in 1984 in an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police/community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. This sends a message to criminals, letting them know that neighborhoods are fighting back. The National Night Out culminates annually on the first Tuesday of October. In that first year, 2.5 million Americans took part across 400 communities in 23 states. National Night Out now involves over 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canada and military bases worldwide.

The traditional "lights on" campaign involves symbolic front porch lights turned on in celebration across America with various events and activities, including but not limited to, block parties, cookouts and visits from emergency personnel, in an attempt to heighten and enhance community relations.

The City of Chandler participates in the annual national "Night Out Against Crime". There are at least 7 neighborhoods participating so far this year. The Chandler Police Dept officers and Chandler Fire Dept personnel along with City Council and City Administration will be participating in this event. If you would like to have a block party or would like more information, please contact Community Police Officer, Carla Moss at (903)571-3885.
