Every August, on the first Tuesday night, neighborhoods all over Suffolk's 430 square miles join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the annual National Night Out (NNO) crime, drug and gang prevention event.

Sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, and co-sponsored locally by the Suffolk Police Department, this annual event involves over 38 million people in over 16,000 communities.

Our Project 365 theme for 2016 is "Working together to take a bite out of GRIME." We’re continuing to build upon the momentum of last year's  Project 365 theme, “Working Together to Take A Bite Out of Crime”, and having expanded the concept to include this year's theme. Using the “Broken Windows Theory”, we’ll increase awareness and participation in our Adopt-A-Spot and Adopt-A-Street Litter Prevention Programs to keep our neighborhoods and communities free from litter and the potential of resulting crime.  

Suffolk neighborhoods are encouraged to host special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from police and city officials, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and anti-crime rallies.
