National Night Out

Tuesday, October 6, 2020 from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event that is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Woodland Police Department.

This year is the 37th anniversary of this event with over 38 million people across the country expected to participate.



National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police and community partnerships
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

Event Details

Participating neighborhoods nationwide are asked to turn on outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and public safety officials. Neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of events ranging from small potlucks and BBQs to large block parties. Some additional event ideas include, but are not limited to, ice cream socials, food or clothing donations, beautify a common area, discuss or plan a Neighborhood Watch Program. It’s up to you - be creative, have fun and celebrate your neighborhood!
