The Burlington Police Department invites you to join us on October 6th at 6:00pm for our first ever virtual National Night Out.  Due to COVID-19 the department, along with agencies all over the nation, will be holding their National Night Out event virtually this year. We are disappointed we won’t be able to visit in person with you and your neighbors.  Burlington generally hosts about 40 neighborhood sites on National Night Out each year. That is a lot of good food and good conversations we are all missing this year!  It won’t be the same but we want to see you and your neighbors on our National Night Out Zoom Call.  With a larger group on virtual platforms it is hard to have a structured question and answer session, so we want to invite you to submit questions ahead of time using this form. As time permits we will answer as many questions as we can.  Can’t wait to see you Burlington!

National Night Out (NNO) is held annually on the first Tuesday in August.  The NNO Campaign is comprised of citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 9,700 communities from all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, cities, towns and neighborhoods will come together to celebrate NNO with a variety of events and activities such as block parties, cookouts, and visits from local police. NNO has proven to be an enjoyable, effective, and inexpensive tool to promote a police-community partnership in our fight for a safer nation. If you would like to participate in National Night Out, contact Community Relations Officer Bobby Davis. We hope to see you there!

Why do we have National Night Out?

The National Night Out (NNO) campaign is multi-functional. It is designed to:
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support for and participate in local anti-crime programs
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are fighting back
