Host a Virtual National Night Out Block Party

Do you want to get your neighbors more involved and make your neighborhood safer?

The annual National Night Out (NNO) event is America’s night to give crime and drugs a going away party. The Orlando Police Department has moved to a Virtual National Night Out (VNNO) for 2020 that will get all of your neighbors engaged in helping to keep Orlando a safe city.

The deadline to register your virtual block party is October 1, 2020.  


Step 1.Check your eligibility

Is your neighborhood or church in the City of Orlando?

Step 2.Gather your information

  • Who will create and share the Zoom link?
  • What time will your party start and end? Most parties will start at 7 p.m. to allow families to get home and get settled before the VNNO begins.
  • How many neighbors and blocks will you invite?
  • Who is on your Planning Committee?
  • Do you have a Neighborhood Watch block captain?
  • Will you have sponsors?
  • How do you plan to use the block party to educate your neighbors about safety and crime prevention?

Step 4.We will contact you

We will follow up with you within two business days and guide you towards your next steps.

Step 5.Host your planning meetings

Starting your planning early will allow you to get more people and local businesses involved.
