    National Night Out is America's night out against crime. Louisville is joining the national efforts with activities for the entire family in all eight police districts on Tuesday, August 7. Last year, National Night Out involved more than 37 million people in 15,325 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, some Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. National Night Out 2012 is expected to be the largest ever.

    The goals of National Night Out and Louisville Metro Police Department, are to:

    • Heighten crime prevention awareness
    • Build support and participation in local anti-crime programs
    • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
    • Send a message that neighborhoods are organized and working together to prevent crime

    The National Association of Town Watch (NATW) is a nonprofit, crime prevention organization which works in cooperation with thousands of crime watch groups and law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Since 1981, NATW has been dedicated to the development, growth and maintenance of organized crime and drug prevention programs nationwide. National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” was introduced by the Association in 1984.
