National Night Out Is Back in East Providence

Tuesday, August 2, 2022


East Providence to Join Cities Nationwide For “America’s Night Out Against Crime”

On Tuesday, August 2, 2022 East Providence is joining thousands of communities nationwide for the “39th Annual National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), will involve over 16,450 communities from all 50 states. In all, over 38 million people are expected to participate in “America’s Night Out Against Crime”.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

This is a great opportunity for local businesses and organizations to come out as a community and get some exposure. Hand out some free promotional items, candy, or do a simple craft with the kids. This is a totally FREE event so you cannot sell anything or collect any money.

For more information on becoming involved in this 11th Annual event in East Providence, contact: Scott Rose-President-E.P. Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association at: 401-529-5639 or or Sgt. James Aceto at: 401-563-8699.
