National Night Out has been celebrated across North America on the first Tuesday of August since 1983. It's a day when people come together in community, get to know their neighbors and their local public safety officials over food, games, and music. Every year, more than 20,000 people in Portland participate. The Office of Community & Civic Life's Community Safety Program coordinates National Night Out (NNO) in Portland, working in partnership with many participating bureaus such as, Portland Parks & Recreation, Portland Fire & Rescue, Portland Police Bureau, Portland Bureau of Emergency Communication, and Portland Bureau of Transportation.
