National Night Out

National Night Out is "America's Night Out Against Crime" sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. The Columbia Police Department coordinates a citywide National Night Out (NNO) observance annually to:

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

For information, call the Community Oriented Policing Unit at 931-560-1631 and visit the National Night Out page.
