National Night Out is designed to:
- Heighten crime and drug awareness
- Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts
- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships
- Send a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are organized, united and looking out for one another!
