Are you ready for National Night Out? On August 2, 2016, join this annual campaign promoting police-community partnerships and camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer.

Building safer neighborhoods also includes preparing those communities for disaster. Celebrate National Night Out by volunteering with your local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT),Citizen Corps, or its partner programs. Through these organizations, you can learn about opportunities to help support first responders during emergencies. There are Citizen Corps partner programs to fit a variety of interests, including
  • Medical Reserve Corps;
  • Neighborhood Watch & Volunteers in Police Service;
  • Civil Air Patrol; and
  • Veterans Active in Citizen Corps.
