[ARCHIVED] National Night Out

National Night Out 2021 401

Celebrate National Night Out in Your Neighborhood

On Tuesday, August 3, Portagers are invited to turn on their outside house lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors celebrating National Night Out.  National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. 

The annual event was created to enhance the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement, while bringing back a true sense of community, and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. 

Citizens are encouraged to plan block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events and can request the Portage Department of Public Safety to stop by. Each neighborhood organizes its own event for a more personal experience. Residents interested in hosting a National Night Out event may contact members of their local Neighborhood Watch or the Portage Department of Public Safety Patrol Lieutenant at 329-4508. Join your neighbors to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity.
