What is National Night Out 2021? America’s night out against crime, is Tuesday, 8/3/2021. This annual community-building campaign promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

The City of Charlotte has supported National Night Out for over 25 years. This year there are more than 70 events happening throughout Charlotte-Mecklenburg. During that time, neighborhoods have organized activities such as block parties, cookouts, porch sit-ins and ice cream socials to demonstrate their support of “no tolerance” for crime. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s (CMPD) is committed to having a presence at each NNO event registered with the City.

In observation of National Night Out, CMPD asks you to leave your porch light on from 7:00pm – 10:00pm. The porch light is a symbol of alertness and awareness; it makes your neighbors and friends feel welcome. Participation is not limited to leaving your porch light only on August 3rd. CMPD also ask that you take time to get to know your neighbors better.
