National Night Out 2021- Back on the Block!
Tuesday, August 3, 2021
The Durham Police Department invites the community to come together to observe National Night Out, America’s annual night out against crime, on August 3 with the theme "Back on the Block."
2021 Theme and Activities
DPD’s local theme for NNO 2021 is Back on the Block. Block parties and cookouts are typically the most popular activities among Durham NNO neighborhoods. However, this year activities such as non-profit fundraising; volunteering; food drives for local food banks; back-to-school supplies campaigns; and local restaurant eat-ins are examples of different ways neighborhoods can support the ideals of NNO and assist organizations and businesses in their COVID-19 recovery.
Register Neighborhood Events by July 19
- NNO neighborhood coordinators who have general questions about this year’s observance may email [email protected], [email protected], or [email protected].
- If phone communication is preferred, neighborhood coordinators may also call the DPD Public Affairs Unit at (919) 560-4322, extension 29172 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
