The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office will join other South Louisiana law enforcement agencies in celebrating National Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday, October 5.

Numerous National Night Out parties will be hosted throughout unincorporated St. Tammany Parish.

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 the various divisions within the STPSO will be participating in this year’s National Night Out Against Crime. Sheriff Randy Smith and his deputies will make an effort to attend as many parties as possible throughout the parish to meet with residents and share crime prevention and awareness tips. 

Below is a list of registered block parties in unincorporated St. Tammany Parish. Sheriff Smith encourages everyone to get out and get to know their neighbors Tuesday evening.
