National Night Out (NNO) is a community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer and improve quality of life. During the event, residents in neighborhoods throughout Arlington County and across the nation are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters and other County personnel. Events such as cookouts, block parties and ice cream socials will occur simultaneously throughout Arlington County and nationwide.


Registration for NNO 2022 is now closed. Registration for NNO 2023 will be announced in our Newsroom at a future date.  

All National Night Out events are hosted by neighborhood organizations, community groups and/or businesses. Registering your event is free and gives police, Arlington County leaders and other representatives an opportunity to attend as time and circumstances permit. Police cannot guarantee attendance at events registered after the deadline. It is not necessary to register your event with the National Association of Town Watch (NATW). 

National Night Out is an Annual Event

NNO occurs on the first Tuesday in August. Arlington County neighborhoods are encouraged to join communities nationwide in celebrating NNO each summer. Thank you to the neighborhoods who have hosted events in past years and to all who participated to help strengthen our police-community partnerships. View photos from NNO 2022.
