“Yes, this is an opportunity to take back our streets, and to send a message about lawlessness, but it’s also an opportunity find out more about our great city,” Mayor Charlie Hales said. “Step 1: Pick a neighborhood and have fun. Step 2: Make our community safer. Through National Night Out, we can do both!”

The Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement has helped Portlanders celebrate National Night Out.

Chief Reese at NNONational Night Out promotes crime and drug prevention in neighborhoods around the nation, on the first Tuesday in August every year, for the last 30 years. When neighbors gather and know one another it sends a message to criminals that the neighborhood is strong, organized, and people care what happens.
