All across the country, communities and law enforcement meet to celebrate “National Night Out” (NNO) which was started  in 1984 by Matt Peskin in Philadelphia. The purpose of NNO is to bring together neighbors, neighborhood watch groups, law enforcement, civic groups, and more to promote community and police partnerships to help make communities safer.  According to National Town Watch, now there are thirty eight million neighbors in sixteen thousand communities across the nation who take part in NNO.

While all 50 states participate in NNO, each state determines when they celebrate, most choosing dates in August, the original founding month.
