Celebrate 2023 National Night Out

The 38th Annual National Night Out Boston is a citywide celebration that cultivates and strengthens partnerships between the community, youth, law enforcement, city/state agencies, and community-based organizations.  The event also acknowledges the contributions that Neighborhood Watch Groups make to Boston’s neighborhood safety and it fosters community participation. 

Come meet Mayor Michelle Wu, Police Commissioner Michael Cox, Boston Police Department Command Staff and your neighbors! 

There will be free kids' activities, food and entertainment plus awards for Boston's crime watch groups.

For more information, call the Neighborhood Crime Watch Unit at 617-343-4345.

National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, began in 1984 in an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. The National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August nationwide.  National Night Out represents the kind of spirit, vitality and determination to help make neighborhoods a safer place year-round. The one-night celebration honors safety and crime prevention successes and works to expand and strengthen programs year-round.
