National Night Out
Promoting Police-Community Partnerships
National Night Out (NNO) is an annual nation-wide community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.
Avenue supports NNO and seeks to use it as a springboard to more substantive and sustained resident engagement, that goes beyond one night in October. In 2017, we supported 15 NNO events in the Greater Northside by providing grant funding, voter registration, and safety surveys to help the hosts take this safety-focused initiative to the next level. The safety surveys offer a simple but powerful tool to strengthen partnerships between residents and law enforcement, by concretely identifying the needs of the neighborhood and stimulating opportunities for beautification and public safety projects.
