The National Night Out, America’s Night Out Against Crime, began in 1984 by The National Association of Town Watch (NATW). The NATW is a nonprofit, crime prevention organization that works in cooperation with thousands of crime watch groups and law enforcement agencies throughout the country. The NATW, which started in 1981, has been dedicated to the development, growth and maintenance of organized crime and drug prevention programs nationwide. Their network has grown to include over 6,500 crime, drug and violence prevention organizations.
“It is important that we provide our young people with alternatives to crime and drugs,” Commissioner Rogers said. The Commissioner went on to say “we must take back our communities, and as such, we must continue to come together and provide alternative programs that will replace destructive activities.” The National Night Out presents an opportunity to bring awareness to our neighborhood crime watch groups.
