National Night Out
On Tuesday, October 3, 2017
, neighborhoods throughout Seminole County are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 34th annual National Night Out (NNO) crime prevention and community partnership event.
National Night Out, established in 1984, is designed to strengthen neighborhood relationships, promote effective community partnerships with law enforcement, and reinforce crime prevention efforts throughout our communities.
From 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm on October 3, 2017
, residents in neighborhoods throughout Seminole County are encouraged to turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outdoors with their neighbors and Sheriff’s Office personnel. Many neighborhoods throughout Seminole County will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities, and anti-crime rallies. Locally assigned deputy sheriffs from the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office are available to stop by and interact with members of the neighborhoods they patrol throughout the county.
In helping to make this night a success, we ask that neighborhoods within the unincorporated areas of Seminole County (those areas not within city limits), who would like a deputy to attend their event, must register their neighborhood event by Friday September 22, 2017. Your email request will be answered with a confirmation within 72 hours. Please register here
