The Port St. Lucie Police Department will host its 32nd Annual National Night Out starting in early August, featuring three local events packed with community activities designed to promote crime prevention awareness.

NNO 2014 involved over 38 million people in 16,242 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. National Night out 2015 is expected to be the largest ever.

National Night Out, a yearlong community building campaign, is designed to:

  1. Heighten crime prevention awareness

  2. Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs

  3. Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships

  4. Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

The three events planned locally are:

March Against Crime – Friday, July 31st from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.

  • Line up at the Civic Center at 9:30 a.m.

Neighborhood Crime Watch Block Parties – Tuesday, August 4th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Attending these events will provide you with a unique opportunity to stand with America in promoting crime awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity. Police-community partnerships are vital to establishing a safer community and nation, and we encourage you to help strength these partnerships through attending National Night Out. Your involvement will highlight the importance of these partnerships and help “give crime a going away party!” 
Come join us in celebrating one of America’s safest cities, and the city with the lowest crime rate of Florida’s largest cities!
