CITY—August 6 marks the nationwide 30th anniversary of “A Night Out Against Crime” to support heightened crime and drug prevention awareness.
Starting in 1984, this event gathers cities across the country, who join to promote crime prevention programs and are activists in keeping their cities safe. National Night Out is part of the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), a non-profit that supports “various crime prevention programs including neighborhood watch groups, law enforcement agencies, state and regional crime prevention associations, businesses, civic groups, and individuals, devoted to safer communities,” as stated on their website. When the programs started, they were still the same as they are today: lowering crime, building a community and sending a message to criminals letting them know that the community is organized and will fight back. National Night Out is an awareness event not only to join the community with purpose, but to prove that there is nothing to be afraid of.
