What is National Night Out?

National Night OutIt's America's Night Out Against Crime!

On August 5, 2008 Glen Ridge participated in the "25th annual National Night Out" (NNO), a unique crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW).

National Night Out is designed 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
  • Encourage youth to have a positive association with Police
In Glen Ridge:
  • The police and ambulance squads visited nine block parties and distributed NNO materials, provided by MAC
  • If you are interested in being part of the 2009 National Night out in Glen Ridge, contact Detective Alvarez for more information at 973-748-4116 or juvenile@glenridgenj.org
  • In 2008, the NNO Grant from GRMAC was $1,500
