National Night Out Against Crime

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships to help make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

“National Night Out” is the nation’s largest annual crime prevention event with over 37 million people in 15,000 communities from all fifty states participating with their local law enforcement agencies.  It is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for the participation in local anti-crime efforts: strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships throughout the city and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

There will be events held at the Martin Luther King Center in Lafayette, as well as in the Cities of Broussard, Carencro, Youngsville and Duson. All events are free to the public.
