National Night Out is a nation-wide crime prevention event.

The night is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite our communities. It is a great chance to learn about crime prevention, while also celebrating your community and spending time with your neighbors and local law enforcement.

Nationally the event is held during the month of August, but due to the extreme heat, many locations in South Louisiana have changed the date to the month of October.

Representatives from all of the various divisions within the STPSO  participate in the annual National Night Out Against Crime campaign.
