The City of Elgin Police Department and the National Association of Town Watch will be sponsoring the 34th Annual National Night Out crime prevention celebration on Tuesday, August 1, 2017. National Night Out is a great opportunity for neighbors to get to know one another and bring more people into the process of preventing crime. Neighborhood Watch groups, homeowner's associations, and any interested residents are encouraged to participate in this year's National Night Out by sponsoring a block party on Tuesday, August 1, 2017, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Last year over 30 neighborhoods joined in the effort to make it a successful event. To register your neighborhood for National Night Out 2017, please contact Cherie Aschenbrenner at (847) 289-2626 or visit the link below. Those who register will have their party visited by city dignitaries. All registrations must be submitted no later than Friday, June 23, 2017, in order to be recognized as an official National Night Out location.
