National Night Out In Virginia Beach

Published: July 24, 2014

National Night Out (NNO) will be observed in Virginia Beach on Tuesday, August 5. NNO is a unique crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch.

For 31 years, cities across the country have participated in this event designed to heighten citizen awareness of crime, strengthen neighborhoods, build stronger community relationships with local police and generate support for anti-crime programs.

In addition to the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, communities celebrate NNO in a variety of ways including block parties, cookouts, visits from local public safety departments, parades, flashlight walks, contests and youth programs.

Currently, more than 37 million citizens in 16,124 communities from all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide participate in National Night Out events.
