Riverside Police Department
National Night Out - Tuesday, August 2, 2016
The Annual National Night Out (NNO) is a community-wide crime prevention program sponsored locally by the Riverside Police Department and our local businesses. NNO is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), ADT, Target, Nextdoor.com, and Associa. NNO is an annual event held throughout the United States to promote cooperation between the police and the community.
NNO events are designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know that Riverside neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Neighborhood social events are being held throughout the City from 6:00-9:00 P.M. Police personnel will be out in force and visiting events that are registered with the department. Fire and City personnel will also be participating in the activities.
