On Tuesday, October 6, 2015, nearly 200 neighborhoods across The American Dream City participated in National Night Out (NNO), an annual event that encourages residents to step outside, get to know their neighbors and take a stand against crime.

City officials and police officers made several stops to visit members of the community in all of the City's districts: East, West, South and North Arlington.

Neighborhoods and law enforcement came together for cookouts, fun events set up for kids, safety demonstrations and various other activities, all in an effort to make Arlington a safer, better place to live.

Arlington's participation in National Night Out continues to surpass other North Texas cities. In a comparison of large cities in the U.S. with populations greater than 300,000 people, Arlington ranks fourth in National Night Out participation, according to the National Association of Town Watch.

The rankings are based on a number of factors, including the overall quality of the National Night Out marketing campaign, neighborhood participation and law enforcement involvement.

National Night Out began back in 1984 and has ties in more than 15,000 communities around the globe.
