About National Night Out
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The event has been held annually since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada. National Night Out began simply with neighbors turning on their porch lights and sitting in front of their homes. The first National Night Out involved 2.5 million residents across 400 communities in 23 states; National Night Out 2016 involved 38 million residents in 16,000 communities across the United States.
The Williamsburg Police Department has been participating in the program since 2014 and it has been growing ever since. It is an opportunity for our community to come together with our area's first responders for an evening of food, fun, and most importantly building stronger relationships with those we serve.
