The National Association of Town Watch introduced National Night Out--America's Night Out Against Crime--in 1984. The night's goals are to
  • heighten crime and drug prevention awareness,
  • generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts,
  • strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and
  • send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
In the 1970s, before the creation of National Night Out, people in several communities participated in a grass-roots effort to deter crime by turning on their porch lights, sitting outside, and talking with their neighbors.
