National Night Out is a great opportunity for citizens and law enforcement to partner up against crime. It is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness,
  • Generate support and participation in crime efforts,
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations,
  • Let criminals know that neighborhoods are informed and vigilant.

Please note the event is subject to change in response to City Guidelines regarding COVID-19.

During the event, residents in neighborhoods throughout Austin and across the nation are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters, EMS medics, and Code inspectors. Events such as cookouts, block parties and neighborhood walks will all occur simultaneously throughout the city and nationwide.
