National Association of Town Watch Groups

The Annual National Night Out (NNO) is a unique Crime and Drug Prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW). National Night Out, 'America's Night Out Against Crime,' was introduced by the National Association of Town Watches in 1984.

The first year, 400 communities in 23 states participated in National Night Out. Nationwide, 2.5 million Americans took part in 1984. The seed had been planted. In subsequent years, participation has grown steadily. The 19th Annual National Night Out on August 6, 2002 involved 33 million people in 9,700 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
