National Night Out

The introduction of National Night Out, "America's Night Out Against Crime", began in 1984 in an effort to promote community involvement in crime prevention activities, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

The traditional "lights on" campaign and symbolic front porch vigils turned into a celebration across America with various events and activities including, block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from emergency personnel, rallies and marches, exhibits, youth events, safety demonstrations and seminars, in effort to heighten awareness and enhance community relations.

Kerman Police Department is proud to be a participant in this program; celebrating each August with the community. Here are some photos of Kerman's National Night Out.
