National Night Out 
 

National Night Out is August 4, 2015, and it's time to register your block party!

It's time to reDISCover your neighborhood with a block party.

For those of you new to neighborhood block parties, here's a little history: Each first Tuesday in August, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., neighbors gather for block parties (or parties at a nearby park) to celebrate safe streets, and community unity against crime. In fact, the effort is done across the nation (and military bases across the world), so millions of people are hosting block parties! In Salem, officers and local business mascots visit as many block parties as our fleet and staffing allows!

Details, details! When you register, be sure to give us some details about your plans, such as contests, live bands, and the number of people attending. Police Chief Jerry Moore enjoys attending the out-of-the-ordinary parties where he can meet and speak with lots of neighbors. So give us the inside scoop on your activities, and you may find he attends your block party!

Yes, you can block party in the street! If you would like to close the street for your party -- go for it! You will, however, need a permit through the Parks & Transportation Services Division. For more information, call (503) 588-6211. Plus, they'll even let you borrow barricades to help create a safety zone for your street shindig.

First-timer? You are highly encouraged and always welcome to have a block party. If you need a few ideas, check out our Block Party Booklet.

Don't miss the pre-party party! As if NNO wasn't exciting enough, we want to get all the block party hosts super-enthused about their efforts. How do we do that? By having a NNO Kick Off Party, of course. All registrants are invited to the police department on Tuesday, July 21 at 6 p.m. for a little fun, and a lot of thanks for contributing to community unity. More details to follow in your registration confirmation card. Just a hint -- that's when we'll give out the block party host commemorative gift.

And, one more reminder: Please take our advice about registering early if you want a visit from a Salem Police NNO Team. We do our absolute best to get to all the parties that request our participation, please keep us apprised of any changes in time or location.

All registrations must be done online using this site.

If you need more information about this event, call the Crime Prevention Unit at (503) 588-6175.
