On August 4, community leaders, elected officials, neighborhood groups and citizens in Baltimore County will gather to celebrate National Night Out.
National Night Out is an opportunity for people to come together and show that they care about the safety of their neighborhoods and are committed to building thriving communities. Activities include cookouts, rallies, picnics, block parties, seminars with local law enforcement, and more. These activities foster community spirit and let criminals know they are not welcome in our neighborhoods.
Since its inception in 1984, National Night Out has grown from 2.7 million Americans participating in 400 communities in 23 states to more than 37 million people and 15,000 communities from all 50 states, United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases around the world.
