Block Captains to coordinate NNO gatherings
National Night Out (NNO) is on Tuesday, Aug. 7. NNO is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. NNO enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. It also provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. On this night, neighborhoods across the nation will host block parties, cookouts, and other various community events.
For this year’s NNO, the Arcadia Police Department is encouraging all Arcadia Neighborhood Watch Block Captains to coordinate their neighborhood’s NNO gathering.
