National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The goal of the campaign is to make Aurora a safer place.
The Police Area Representative Teams for District 1, which serves West Aurora (areas west of I-225) hosted two community gatherings to celebrate the 35th anniversary of National Night Out.
Moorehead Recreation Center, 2390 Havana St.
6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Utah Park, 1800 S. Peoria St.
5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
“Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas and select areas celebrate on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.”
