NATIONAL NIGHT OUT IN BELOIT

NEW THIS YEAR, citizens are free to choose to have their individual block parties on either Tuesday, August 6th, or Wednesday, August 7th, in the City of Beloit! BPD will be hosting a kickoff event on August 7th, at 5:00 p.m. at Telfer Park.  We look forward to seeing you there and at a block party near your home. 

 

In 2023, more than 600 people attended the kickoff event and citizens hosted more than 16 block parties throughout Beloit.  Let's see if we can beat those numbers this year!

Neighborhoods throughout the City of Beloit are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for National Night Out crime and drug prevention event.  National Night Out involves over 34 million people participating in "America's Night Out Against Crime" each year.

National Night Out is designed to:  1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; 2) strengthen neighborhood spirit and Police-community partnerships; 3) generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts; and, 4) send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
