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.
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.
Register Your Event
NNO is an opportunity to celebrate your neighborhood! All events are hosted by neighborhood organizations, community groups and/or businesses. Registration is free and provides police officers and Arlington County representatives an opportunity to attend events as time and circumstances permit. Registration for 2020 will be posted in early summer and announced online.
NNO took place on August 6, 2019 and ACPD personnel visited 13 events across the County. Thank you to the communities who hosted events! ACPD had a wonderful time meeting residents and engaging with communities. View photos from 2019.
