National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community relationship and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.  Over 38 million neighbors take part in National Night Out across 16+ thousand communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide.

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to:

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

It's America's Night Out Against Crime! 



The National Night Out event will be held in the Target Parking Lot of the Stafford Marketplace on Tuesday, August 1, 2017, from 6-9 pm.  This free, community event is intended to be a supplement to neighborhood events.  Click HERE for this year's event flyer.

We encourage each neighborhood/HOA to have their own NNO event to help their neighbors get to know one another.  NNO 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.  Plus, the benefits your community will derive from NNO will most certainly extend well beyond the one night. 

Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, neighborhoods 'celebrate' NNO with a variety of events and activities such as:

  • block parties
  • cookouts
  • parades
  • exhibits
  • flashlight walks
  • contests
  • youth programs
  • meet and greet
  • pool party / games
  • carnival
  • face painting
  • sno cones
  • cotton candy
  • karaoke
  • moon bounce
  • clowns
  • live music
  • watermelon social
  • potluck
  • ice cream social
  • water balloons
  • information booths

The Stafford Sheriff's Office will have a Deputy at each event, and they will have NNO goodies to give away!  Visit National Night Out Super Store for more information on merchandise that can be ordered.
