National Night Out has been celebrated across North America on the first Tuesday of August since 1983. It's a day when people hold parties to strengthen community cohesiveness and crime resistance, and get to know their neighbors and their local public safety officials. When neighbors get to know each other, they create more connected and safer communities. Every year, more than 20,000 people in Portland participate. The Office of Community & Civic Life's Crime Prevention Program has the responsibility for coordinating National Night Out (NNO) in Portland, working in partnership with many participating Bureaus; Portland Parks & Recreation, Portland Fire & Rescue, Portland Police Bureau, Portland Bureau of Emergency Communication, and Portland Bureau of Transportation.
