National Night Out – October 6th, 2020


Lights on Means Lights Out for Crime

Out of an abundance of caution in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the date for National Night Out 2020 is set to be, Tuesday, October 6, 2020. While National Night Out may look a little different this year, we are continuing to work diligently to build strong community connections in a safe and healthy manner.

National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners. The goal is to heighten crime prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most importantly, send a message that our neighborhoods are organized and standing against crime.

Residents in neighborhoods throughout the City of York and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside porch lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.

Keep in mind:

All events or programs must follow CDC and/or Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines as it relates to social distancing, sanitation and face coverings.

We are encouraging smaller gatherings of 50 or less this year.

Pre-Packaged food only

Have hand sanitizing stations available
