National Night Out
Partin Park, Lyons
National Night Out is a community/police awareness-raising event held across the U.S. It started in 1984 with neighbors
turning on their porch lights and sitting in front of their homes. Today, more than 38 million residents in 22 thousand
communities celebrate the event, which increases awareness about police programs in communities, such as drug prevention,
neighborhood watch, and other anti-crime efforts.
