Purpose


Night to Unite (formerly known as National Night Out) is designed to:
  • Generate support for, and participation in local anti-crime programs.
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.

Activities


Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, cities, towns and neighborhoods celebrate Night to Unite with a variety of events and activities such as:
  • Block parties
  • Contests
  • Cookouts
  • Flashlight walks
  • Parades
  • Visits from local police and fire departments
  • Youth programs

Benefits


Night to Unite has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer nation. The benefits your community will derive from Night to Unite will most certainly extend well beyond the night.
