National Night Out is a neighborhood crime and drug prevention event that occurs annually and is celebrated in every city and town in the U.S. This year, National Night Out will be held in San Antonio on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
In addition to increasing awareness of crime and drug prevention programs, National Night Out also strengthens neighborhood spirit and community-police partnerships, while sending a message to criminals that “neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime!”
San Antonio has always had strong and enthusiastic support for and participation in National Night Out, and won National Night Out awards in 1998, 2003, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
