National Night Out

NNO 35th Anniversary

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Together, we are making that happen. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits.

DRCA hosts a gathering for National Night Out each summer at the fields behind the Mount Vernon Community Center.

A big thank-you to Alexandria City’s first responders for all they do throughout the year and to those who joined us at #AlexNNO18 in Del Ray. Special thanks to the Alexandria Volunteer Fire Department who are leaving Del Ray after handling the grills at NNO for ages. Thanks to Her Honor the Mayor, Councilmembers Pepper and Smedberg, Sen. Ebbin, Del. Levine, Chief Brown and City Manger Jinx for stopping by. Best of luck to candidates Bennet-Parker, Jackson, and Harris in November. Hats off to DRCA Activities Director Tom Ortiz, Kate Madrick and all the volunteers who muscled through this event.
