National Night Out

On Tuesday, August 7th, from 7.00PM to 10.00PM neighborhoods throughout Mint Hill are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the "35th Annual National Night Out" (NNO) crime and drug prevention event.  National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by the Mint Hill Police Department, will involve over 16, 500 communities from all 50 states, US Territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world.  In all, over 38.5million people are expected to participate in "America's Night Out Against Crime".  NNO 2018 corporate sponsors are Dietz & Watson, Ring, Associa and Package Guard.

National Night Out is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

From 7 to 10 PM on August 7th, resident in neighborhoods throughout Mint Hill and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.  Many neighborhoods throughout Mint Hill are encouraged to host a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from police, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and anticrime rallies.
