What is National Night Out?

National Night Out was introduced in August of 1984 through an already established network of law enforcement agencies, neighborhood watch groups, civic groups, state and regional crime prevention associations, and volunteers across the nation. The first NNO involved 2.5 million neighbors across 400 communities in 23 states.

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

NNO is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

Bensalem Township will host their National Night out at the Township Pavilion, 2400 Byberry Rd on August 2nd from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
