Neighbors throughout York City and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on their front porch lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement on Tuesday, August 1, 2023 (5-8PM). National Night Out is nationally sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), Ring, New York Life, Starbucks, AT&T, Academy Sports & Outdoors as well as co-sponsored locally by the York City Police Department. It is an annual community-building campaign that promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Together we are making that happen.
Along with the traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, most communities celebrate National Night Out by hosting block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts, and other various community events such as safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits, and more.
York City Police officers along with members of the York City Police Department command staff will be visiting block parties at different locations throughout the city. York City Fire Department personnel and city officials will be visiting these locations as well. Each location will have activities, music, food, and entertainment. Come out and meet your neighbors!
If you plan a party and want a visit from McGruff the Crime Dog or the Department’s new therapy dogs Victory and Bennie, please register! At time of registration, we will need: Coordinator Contact information, Site Location, Time of event, and estimated attendance.
