Citywide in Saint Paul
Time? What fits your neighborhood best! National Night Out 2017 Logo


National Night Out, held on the 1st Tuesday of every August, is a nationwide event designed to build partnerships, strengthen relationships between neighbors and law enforcement, and raise crime prevention awareness across the nation.

We encourage, ask for, and appreciate ALL SAINT PAUL residents to participate on
Tuesday, August 1, 2017, for the 34th annual National Night Out! Neighborhoods
including everyone; homeowners, renters, retail, and all businesses are needed to help
make our city “the most livable place in America!” Hosting a block party or an event of
any kind large or small, provides a way for people to meet one another and discover
how they can keep their area a place they all want to live, work, play, or whatever the
case, as crime free and with a high quality of life for all. National Night Out has proven
time and time again to help people work together to improve safety in their
neighborhoods. Begin your planning early and become involved in National Night Out 2017!
