Neighborhoods throughout Collierville are invited to again join communities nationwide by participating in the annual National Night Out set for Aug. 5 from 6 -9 p.m.

The Collierville Police Department encourages residents to take the ‘Night Out’ special recognition day as an opportunity to bring together friends, family, neighborhoods, other groups, adults and children alike, to show support of local anti-crime awareness.

National Night Out is also called “America’s Night Out Against Crime.” The nationwide event is designed to heighten drug prevention and crime awareness, generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships. Neighbors uniting send a message to criminals letting them know that their neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

National Night Out now involves over 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.

The Collierville Police Department coordinates the annual event, which drew participation from more than 30 local neighborhoods last year.

To participate, go to, to sign up your neighborhood, group or subdivision to be part of this event.

Members of the Collierville Police Department and representatives of Collierville Mayor and Board of Aldermen will use registered events to visit as many of the locations as possible. Often, ‘America’s Night out Against Crime’ gatherings include block parties, parades, ice cream socials and more. There is no size requirement to take part in National Night Out so the event can be as large or small as desired.

“It would be great if we could double participation over last year’s National Night Out groups,” Collierville Police Chief Larry Goodwin said. “By staying highly visible as a Police force and uniting as a Town for this event, the stronger position we present against crime.”
