National Night Out 2020 CANCELLED
We originally rescheduled National Night Out to October 6th in hope that conditions would improve. Afterall, we look forward to National Night Out every year and enjoy connecting with neighbors through this event. After much consideration, our department has decided not to participate in National Night Out this year out of an abundance of caution given the continued impact of COVID-19 in our region. We don’t think it is a good idea to encourage community gatherings in the next few months, just to be cautious. As a result, we won’t be taking registrations since officers and fire personnel will not be attending any events this year.
If you are planning a virtual event with your Tigard neighborhood, please let us know. Tigard Police Chief McAlpine and Tigard City Council are interested in virtually attending NNO events planned for October 6, 2020. Please email us at AskTigardPolice@tigard-or.gov.
About National Night Out
Every year, NNO is celebrated internationally on the first Tuesday of August. NNO’s goals are for neighbors to get to know each other, become invested in their shared space and work together to make neighborhoods more crime resistant.
Get Involved with Your Neighbors
Residents are encouraged to host a function that brings neighbors together out of their homes and onto the street—whether that’s a block party, cookout or an ice cream social. Be creative and do something that will be fun and celebratory!
Party organizers who host NNO events in the City of Tigard can register with Tigard Police and request officers to visit their parties. Tigard Police will do their best to attend every registered event. Registration typically opens the month prior to NNO.
Nationally more than 38 million people took part last year alone in more than 16,000 communities across the country. In Tigard and many other communities, National Night Out has grown into a community-building event that connects neighbors and makes their neighborhoods safer.
