The Durham Police Department (DPD) is encouraging area residents, businesses, neighborhood groups, and homeowners’ associations to show their support for police-community crime prevention partnerships by participating in Durham’s National Night Out (NNO) on Tuesday, October 1st. More details forthcoming.
What is NNO?
National Night Out (NNO) teams law enforcement agencies with citizens, community leaders, civic groups and local businesses to promote safe, healthy neighborhoods. The NNO observance is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Why is Durham’s NNO in October?
Although NNO is offered nationally on the first Tuesday in August, DPD has moved the city-wide celebration to the first Tuesday in October to take advantage of cooler temperatures.
