2014 National Night Out

"America's Night Out Against Crime"

National Night Out LogoOn August 5 from 6-10 p.m., residents in neighborhoods throughout Chesterfield County and across the nation, are asked to lock their doors, turn on the outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.  

Many neighborhoods throughout Chesterfield will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from police, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and anticrime rallies.

Find a National Night Out Party Near You 

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.

Steps to Plan a Block Party

  • Solicit help from your neighbors and form a committee. You will find that as a group, you will be able to generate some great ideas as to what type of event to plan. Your Block Captains may make excellent committee members.
  • As the committee chairperson, assign tasks to your committee members. Examples of tasks might include:
    • Selecting an event location (clubhouse, private home, cul‐de‐sac, vacant lot, youth center, church, etc.)
    • Advertising your event (flyers, newsletters, public meetings)
    • Refreshments
    • Setup and cleanup
    • Entertainment or speaker(s)
     
  • Plan a follow‐up meeting to discuss your communities' progress.
  • Register your block party or event with the police department.
  • Talk up your event with your neighbors, homeowners/civic association, local businesses, places of worship and friends.

Watch it all come together and enjoy your 31st Annual National Night Out!
