National Night Out (NNO), the country's annual nighttime anti-crime time, has been a community-based national effort in crime prevention since 1984. What started as 2.5 million people in 400 communities across 23 states has grown into 37 million people in 15,100 communities from all 50 states by last year's count.

On Tuesday August 2, the LAPD 77th Division in conjunction with the Los Angeles Department of Recreation & Parks will be hosting an NNO event from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Van News Recreation Center with food, games, arts & crafts, free basketball clinic and more.

There are also block parties, unity walks, neighborhood watch, peace rallies, potlucks, open houses, picnics, movies and more throughout the region. Check the complete LAPD schedule of events and the NNO map for other registered communities across the country.
