2006 National Night Out

On Tuesday, August 1, 2006 neighborhoods across Austin will turn on porch lights for National Night Out, an annual, nationwide event designed to promote neighborhood safety. National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support for crime prevention
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back!

You can get involved in a variety of ways:

  • Get all of your neighbors to turn on their porch lights.
  • Meet your neighbors by attending a block party or hosting a barbecue.
  • Encourage your kids to get involved. Ask them to make posters and yard signs for the event.
  • Invite local law enforcement to talk about crime prevention.
  • Distribute a neighborhood block list, phone numbers, etc.
  • Plan a fall clean-up or bulb planting.
