National Night Out

National Night Out is a great opportunity for citizens and law enforcement to partner up against crime. We invite you to attend the event, meet your neighbors and commit to helping law enforcement reduce crime in your community.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support and participation in crime efforts
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community relations
  • Let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

During the event, residents in neighborhoods throughout Martin and across the nation are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters, and EMS paramedics. Events such as cookouts, block parties, and neighborhood walks will all occur simultaneously throughout the city and nationwide.

National Night Out has proven to be an effective and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer nation. Plus, the benefits our community will derive from National Night Out will most certainly extend well beyond the one night.
