2021 National Night Out (NNO) will be a centralized event!
Neighborhoods throughout the country get together to celebrate unity against crime during National Night Out with a projected date the first Tuesday in August. Last year, NNO celebrations did not take place because of Covid-19 concerns.
This year however, the Prescott Valley Police Department is planning an outdoor, centralized event from 4-8 p.m., Tuesday, August 3, at the Town Civic Center Theater on the Green and Civic Center lawns. Police officers and Town staff will be on hand to talk with residents.
Block Watch groups and local businesses are invited to set up a table/tent at the event. If you would like to participate, please call CPO Evelyn Whittaker at 928-772-5113 or email Evelyn by June 4.
Make your plans to be part of the fun!
National Night Out is designed to:
Increase awareness of crime and drug prevention
Generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs
Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
Send the message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
NNO has proved to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program that promotes neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships in our efforts to make the nation safer. Plus, the benefits our community derives from NNO most certainly extend well beyond one night!
