National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. Together, we are making that happen. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits.
The Dunkirk Police Department has a partnership with Nextdoor, the free and private social network for neighborhoods, to build stronger, safer communities with the help of residents. This integration with Nextdoor will enable the Dunkirk Police Department to communicate online with city neighborhoods. Residents and the Dunkirk Police Department will be able to work together to increase safety and strengthen virtual neighborhood watch.
Dog Walker Watch (DWW) is a crime awareness program sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and coordinated locally by law enforcement agencies and crime watch groups or other community organizations. The program encourages dog walkers nationwide to serve as “extra eyes and ears” for local law enforcement agencies in the ongoing crime prevention efforts.
National Association of Town Watch invites you to register for the Dog Walker Watch Crime Awareness Program and turn your neighborhood into a safer, more alert community.
