National Night Out, Are You Signed Up?

Everyone it's time for National Night Out Sanford 2012! Save some room in your busy schedule August 7th to fight crime in a neighborhood near you. National Night Out is designed to

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

  • Outdoor lights and front porch vigils aren't the only ways to celebrate in Sanford. We at the City are hosting several :
    • block parties,
    • cookouts,
    • visits from local police and sheriff departments,
    • parades, exhibits,
    • flashlight walks,
    • contests, and
    • youth programs.
    NNO has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer nation. Plus, the benefits your community will derive from NNO will most certainly extend well beyond the one night. For more information on the event visit or
