National Night Out, held each year the first Tuesday in August, is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
It is a great opportunity to HAVE FUN and get to know each other. Each community has their own way of celebrating NNO. In Happy Valley, neighborhoods plan their own block parties. Parties that are registered with the City of Happy Valley receive a free “party package” that includes hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and water. We have to warn you, your street party might get a little noisy when the HV Police and Clackamas Fire District arrive with their lights and sirens on! Your City Councilors, City staff and members of the Traffic & Public Safety Committee will also drop by your festivities with prizes for the kids and crime prevention tips and hand-outs for the adults.
Our National Night Out celebration gets bigger and better every year – last year we visited 29 neighborhood parties. Let’s continue growing this event and keep crime out of our community!
