National Night Out is a national community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships – it is typically celebrated the first Tuesday in October. National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. It is intended to send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are invested in the unity and quality of their communities.

Changes to National Night Out 2020
Before the 2020 pandemic, neighborhoods would host block parties, festivals, youth events, and cookouts. Emergency personnel would provide safety demonstrations, seminars and exhibits, and City Officials would make their rounds to visit the neighborhoods.
Unfortunately, while we still encourage neighborhood comradery in a safe, socially distant, responsible manner, the Nassau Bay Police Department, Nassau Bay Volunteer Fire Department, EMS, and City Officials will NOT be in attendance for any National Night Out block parties this year. Although National Night Out 2020 won't be like past years, we hope that you will keep the National Night Out spirit alive and growing.
