On Tuesday, August 6, nearly 90 Durham neighborhoods and groups will join 38 million people in more than 16,000 communities worldwide in observing the 36th Annual National Night Out (NNO) Against Crime. City and state leaders, Durham Police Department (DPD) officials, partnering public safety agencies and community groups will visit neighborhoods holding various NNO celebrations across the city. A focal point of the NNO observance is to highlight successful police-community partnerships.

Durham neighborhoods are supporting the observance in a variety of ways including cookouts, neighborhood parades, baking contests, ice cream socials and guest speakers. DPD provided each registered group a NNO Promo Pack that includes NNO T-shirts, NNO ball caps, NNO hand fans, NNO balloons and Durham CrimeStoppers paraphernalia. Durham City Council members, City administrators, police administrators and employees, and various other public safety and community agencies will visit registered sites throughout the evening to help promote NNO goals.
