National Night Out (NNO)

Tuesday, August 6th

Throughout Hayward!  

NNO provides a unique opportunity for Hayward to join forces with thousands of other communities across the country in promoting cooperative, police-community crime prevention efforts. The presence of local law enforcement in the community under the positive circumstances of a NNO allows many residents to meet their officers on a one-to-one basis.


Each year, the Hayward Police Department, along with other City Officials, Neighborhood Alert, Inc., local residents and other community stakeholders – i.e., local businesses, other public agencies, community and faith-based service organizations, and neighborhood groups celebrate National Night Out (NNO).

National Night Out (NNO), it is an annual event designed to strengthen our neighborhoods through police-community partnerships. The goal is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs and, most importantly, send a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors even better!


NNO is coordinated by local law enforcement agencies,

Hayward Neighborhood Alert, Inc., and Target is the national sponsor.


Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils (residents show their support by leaving their porch lights on between7:00 – 10:00 pm), our city celebrates NNO with neighborhood Block Parties. NNO begins at 6:00 pm with members from the Hayward Police Department and City Officials visiting each Block Party registered to participate.

Don’t Miss Out – Get Involved…

Get out and meet your neighbors, and participate in our “Light’s On” campaign!
