It'll be well worth it because National Night Out is America's Night Out Against Crime, which started back in 1984 as a way to help police and communities come together to:

  1. Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  2. Generate support for local anti-crime efforts
  3. Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  4. To send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back!

The national holiday is primarily celebrated on August 1st to kick off the new month, so in an effort to celebrate amongst the 34.5 Million people and 11,310 communities across the country, we have a list of some National Night Out Events in New Jersey
