National Night Out

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Together, we are making that happen.

From time to time, neighbors throughout your city and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on their front porch lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement.

Along with the traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, most communities celebrate National Night Out by hosting block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and more.

Join the Newton Police Department, Jasper County Sheriff's Office, and the Newton Fire Department for the City of Newton's National Night Out on Tuesday, October 3rd from 5 – 7 p.m. at Aurora Park. The Night Out will include food trucks, inflatables, games, and other activities, including a special appearance by the Iowa League of Heroes.
