About National Night Out

National Night Out Against Crime is an ambitious police-community partnership building event. The "32nd Annual National Night Out", a unique crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch has been scheduled for Tuesday, August 4, 2015. We cordially invite you to be a part of our NIGHT OUT 2015 event.

Last year's National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, over 37 million people participated in National Night Out 2014.

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Glen Cove’s National Night Out Against Crime 2015

Glen Cove joins thousands of cities and towns across America to recognize the vital relationship of Police Departments and their communities to create safer neighborhoods and stronger working partners through participating in the National Night Out program. Mayor Reggie Spinello and Glen Cove Police Chief William Whitton encourage all residents to participate in Glen Cove’s National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in downtown Glen Cove (Bridge Street by the Glen Cove Police Department).

Complete with tours of the Glen Cove Police Department, children’s activities and free food and refreshments, this neighborhood block party-style event will also include lessons on firearms safety, distribution of child ID kits, Emergency vehicle demonstrations, music and more. “National Night Out is an outstanding event that provides our residents with an opportunity to build relationships with Glen Cove’s law enforcement officers and learn about the many programs and services offered by the City and community groups,” said Mayor Reggie Spinello. This year, the Reverend Craig Wright of the Calvary AME Church has been chosen as the 2015 National Night Out honoree for his outstanding dedication to the youth of our community on behalf of Glen Cove’s Law Enforcement Community.

“This is the most important event the Glen Cove Police Department and PBA supports each year as it underscores the critical relationship of our police officers with the Glen Cove community,” said Police Chief William Whitton. “Safety and neighborhood unity all stem from the strength of a strong relationship between our department and the community we serve and protect.”

Sponsored by the Glen Cove Police Department, PBA, Glen Cove Youth Bureau, Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department, Glen Cove Housing Authority and local businesses, the goal for hosting this event is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs as well as strengthen police-community partnerships.
