Police Invite Community to Celebrate National Night Out
Published on June 05, 2023
ARLINGTON, Va. –– The Arlington County Police Department (ACPD) invites Arlington neighborhoods and organizations to gather for National Night Out (NNO) events on Tuesday, August 1, 2023 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. NNO is a national program held annually on the first Tuesday of August and, in 2023, is celebrating 40 years of community-building that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
During NNO, outdoor events such as cookouts, block parties and ice cream socials are held simultaneously around Arlington County and nationwide to strengthen open lines of communication between law enforcement and the community which is vital to public safety. NNO is also an opportunity to promote and practice crime prevention strategies. ACPD encourages participants to lock their doors, turn their porch lights on and secure their property using the methods contained in the 9 P.M. Routine before spending the evening with neighbors, law enforcement, firefighters and County employees.
ACPD looks forward to connecting with you and your family on National Night Out!
