patchNational Night Out is an annual crime and drug abuse prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. The event brings citizens and Cary police together to strengthen neighborhood spirit and foster partnerships for safer communities.

National Night Out is celebrated in local communities across the country on the first Tuesday in August.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for and participation in anti-crime efforts; and strengthen police-community communications. Last year's events involved over 37 million people in 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide.

If your neighborhood is interested in hosting their own National Night Out Community Event, please contact Sergeant Robin Edwards to register.
