National Night Out (NNO)

is a community-building campaign that culminates annually on the first Tuesday in August. Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from public safety personnel, and much, much more.

National Night Out promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Additionally, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and other first responders together with residents under positive circumstances. The program enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community.

National Night Out 2020

Usually every year we look back at the fun times and memories of last year’s National Night Out event.

Unfortunately, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we were unable to celebrate NNO in a safe and caring manner. We are looking forward to many of our neighborhoods registering with the city and holding blowout celebrations with neighbors and public safety personnel throughout the city. We are here to assist and support you with your NNO 2021 planning and participation in helping make Pittsburgh SaferTogether!
