Start Planning Your Neighborhood Event Today!
JACKSONVILLE, FL (June 26, 2018) - We are just six weeks away from the annual community event known as National Night Out . On this night, each year, neighbors across the nation come together to show their support for local law enforcement. These community partnerships help make our neighborhoods a safer place to live.
Each neighborhood event varies from a small social gathering at a neighbor’s house, to a block party or ice cream social. The goal is to help strengthen neighborhoods, increase awareness about the importance of crime prevention and reporting and reinforce police/neighborhood relationships.
This year marks the 32nd year that JSO and Jacksonville citizens have participated in this event and this is the 35th year for the national initiative known as National Night Out.
