Annual National Night Out Neighborhood Celebration-August 2, 2016


National Night Out (NNO) is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.

The NNO program culminates annually on the first Tuesday of August. Neighbors celebrate across thousands of communities from all fifty states, United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.

University Estates has been an active participant in NNO over the past 9 years, and has garnered both civic recognition and been awarded nationally each of the past five years for its participation in the NNO event.

To make the event happen we need a team of volunteers. Please consider joining us in the planning and coordination of this event. More details to follow by March.

“… a chance to bring neighborhoods together with the men & women who protect them. The safety of our communities depend on both law enforcement and the citizens they serve, and tonight’s events will enhance that cooperation.”

Joe Biden Vice President

“… preventing and solving crime is a community effort. National Night Out is an excellent program that helps the department build relationships with citizens and create safer neighborhoods. This is one of the events we look forward to each year.”
