NNO party in LFP
From LFP Police Chief Mike Harden

We are all excited about the National Night Out event and hopefully we have great weather. 

NNO is a series of nationwide celebrations to give neighbors an opportunity to get together in a setting close to home. 

NNO is also an opportunity for officers to interact with residents in a positive, relaxed and informal way. 

Officers and residents often use NNO as an opportunity to communicate about neighborhood concerns and crime prevention tips.

There are many different types of NNO events - it all depends on the neighborhood. Some residents host block parties. Sometimes events are built around a barbecue, ice cream social or potluck dinner. Some simply gather in their cul-de-sac and socialize while their children play. Any gathering that gives neighbors a chance to step outside their homes and talk fits the bill!

Representatives from the LFP Police Department attend neighborhood events throughout the city to answer questions about law enforcement and share effective strategies for fighting crime in our neighborhoods. Officer involvement depends on availability.

For 2019, we have registered over 40 events. I have created an NNO map for our LFP community.

If you are thinking of joining a party, the contact information is listed. The title of the party gives the location details. So, find your house location and look for an event in the area. Come out and meet your neighbors.

We are a smaller police department, but we will do our best with the on-duty staff to visit many of these locations. Understand that if an officer does come to your party, they will be limited in time, as they will be visiting as many parties as possible.

Have a great Tuesday night!
