National Night Out is an annual family-friendly event hosted by police departments across the nation to promote crime prevention and personal safety by providing educational materials for parents, hosting games about safety for kids, and allowing community members to get to know the officers who serve them. There is also free food, prizes, and impressive equipment displays featuring police cars, police motorcycles, ambulances, fire vehicles, BIPD’s police boat, and more. The location of the event varies from year to year, but it always takes place on the first Tuesday evening in August. Unfortunately, we were not able to host NNO in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions. Be sure to follow us on Facebook - you'll be the first to know if there will be an event in 2021!
Support for National Night Out is provided by local merchants and non-profit organizations. The BIPD is deeply grateful to all the local merchants, non-profit organizations and volunteers who help make the evening a resounding success year after year. We can’t do it without you!
