Lynnwood Gears Up For National Night Out Against Crime
Sign up your neighborhood groupfor the August 7 annual event

NNOLYNNWOOD, WA (June 12, 2018) – The Annual “National Night Out Against Crime” celebration for 2018 is scheduled all across America for Tuesday evening, August 7th. During National Night Out (NNO) residents turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and go out to meet their neighbors in the name of crime prevention.

In 2017, more than 38.5 million people in 16,500 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide participated in NNO.This year’s “35th Annual NNO” will be the largest ever!

NNO is designed to:

  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships.
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized & fighting back.
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.
  • Generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs.

Statistics prove over and over that criminal activity is reduced when neighbors watch out for each other.

The Lynnwood Police Department, in partnership with community organizations, South County Fireand other city departments, encourages residents to organize a neighborhood event to bring neighbors together.

By involving several households in each neighborhood everyone shares in the fun of creating a real community building “block party.” It could be as simple as a dessert potluck in a garage, hot dogs grilling poolside at an apartment complex, or a barbeque gathering in a driveway.

The LPD and its partners try to visit as many neighborhoods as possible to connect with residents during this fun event.

Register Now:

Register your Lynnwood neighborhood party online, orcall the LPD Crime Prevention Unit at 425-670-5639.


2018 National Sponsors: Associa, Ring, Dietz & Watson
