Smithfield National Night Out 2015

Citizens of the Town of Smithfield / Isle of Wight County are invited to participate with other neighborhoods throughout the United States in celebration of National Night Out on Tuesday evening, August 4, 2015

National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event that is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Smithfield Police Department.  This year is the thirty-second anniversary of this event with over 37 million people across the country expected to participate.

 National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts.
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships.
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Since 2002, the Town of Smithfield has celebrated our safe community by participating in National Night Out event each year.  The annual NNO events are designed to generate a safe and fun environment, promoting citizens of all ages to join with law enforcement to build and strengthen our police community partnerships. They encourage neighborhood safety, crime prevention awareness, and most importantly open doors of mutual cooperation and trust. In our estimation, the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence but NNO does represent the kind of spirit, energy and determination that helps make Smithfield a safer place to live, work, and recreate year round. The night celebrates community safety, promotes crime prevention successes, and works to expand and strengthen our neighborhood watch groups.  

This year’s NNO event is on Tuesday August 4, 2015 at the Main Street Baptist Church.  This is a free community event that begins at 5:00 pm and ending at 8:00 pm.  You do NOT have to be a current member of a Neighborhood Watch group or a resident to participate.  National Night Out is for everyone!  Come out and celebrate our safe community at this year’s event. The Town of Smithfield is a nationally registered participant in this year’s event. If you have any questions about this year’s event contact the SPD’s Crime Prevention Unit (757) 357-3247.
