In addition to fostering police-community partnerships, one of the main objectives of National Night Out is to displace the opportunity for crime simply by residents coming
outdoors together -- on our streets, sidewalks, and front yards -- to reclaim our neighborhoods, at least on that night, and as often as possible throughout the year, and to otherwise raise crime-prevention awareness.

Residents are encouraged not only to attend this Police District 6 event to get to know our neighborhood police officers and learn about police department crime fighting activities, but also simply to gather in our own neighborhoods, such as an outdoor barbecue, picnic, potluck, whatever, with or without a specific crime prevention theme.

At a minimum, all residents are encouraged to keep our front porch and rear house lights turned on at night and to secure our homes and cars, especially on National Night Out to show unity within our community, but also every other night, to reduce the opportunities for crime.
