National Night Out is primarily a law enforcement sponsored event that enables local departments to introduce themselves to the communities in which they work. At these events, first responders are able to inform and educate citizens on the services they provide. It is an opportunity for citizens to become pro-active in the fight against crime as well as develop a sense of ownership in their community. Additionally, other branches of emergency services such as the fire department and emergency medical services traditionally participate in the National Night Out campaign.
