National Night Out Events in La Crosse

NNO 2014Tuesday, August 4th marks the 32nd National Night Out and the 18th Annual celebration here in La Crosse!

National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event in which Neighborhood Watch groups get together across the nation in the form of local block parties, cookouts, and youth programs.  The NNO campaign involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations, and local officials from across all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.  Last year alone, over 38 million people from 16,124 communities participated in NNO.

There are many reasons the La Crosse Police Department encourages people to celebrate NNO, including:

  • It heightens crime and drug prevention awareness
  • It generates support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs
  • It strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  • It sends a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

This year, La Crosse area Neighborhood Watch groups, in partnership with the La Crosse Police Department, will be hosting National Night Out celebrations, helping to promote the NNO message.  La Crosse area celebrations include:

  • 306 Rose Street (alley and garage) – 5:00 to 7PM
  • Elite Repeat at 16th & Jackson Streets – 5:00 to 7:30PM
  • 3456 & 3458 Woodbridge Court – 5:30 to 8:00PM
