ARLINGTON, Va. –– The Arlington County Police Department (ACPD) invites community members and organizations to celebrate outdoor National Night Out (NNO) events on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. NNO is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our communities safer and improve quality of life.
“Following a socially-distant celebration in 2020, ACPD looks forward to reconnecting in-person with neighborhoods across Arlington during National Night Out,” said Chief Andy Penn. “This annual event is a great opportunity for officers and the Arlington community to come together to strengthen neighborhood spirit and build stronger relationships which are vital to maintaining public safety. I truly believe we are at our best when we are working collaboratively with the community and hope you will join us on August 3.”
During NNO, residents in neighborhoods throughout Arlington County and across the nation are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters and other County personnel. Outdoor events such as cookouts, block parties and ice cream socials will occur simultaneously throughout Arlington County and nationwide.
