National Night Out

Join us for a Virtual National Night Out
Tuesday, October 6, 5:00-6:00 PM

The City of Dublin annually participates in the National Night Out campaign, which is designed to promote civic pride and unity among neighbors who share an anti-drug and anti-crime stance.

National Night Out was introduced by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) in 1984 and began as a concept for generating greater crime prevention involvement among residents. What started with residents simply leaving their porch lights on soon progressed to something bigger: neighbors organizing cookouts, parades, contests, neighborhood walks, festivals, rallies, and community service events, such as a park clean-up. Today, more than 35 million people and over 15,000 communities participate in National Night Out!

Due to COVID-19, Dublin Police Services will be hosting a virtual National Night Out event this year. In an effort to still connect with the community, the event will be held via Zoom Video Communications on Tuesday, October 6, 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.  The meeting will feature information about crime statistics, crime trends, and upcoming holiday safety tips, as well as a question-and-answer session.  

To submit questions prior to the Zoom meeting, please email Sergeant Chris Shepard at
