Aug 6: National Night Out Aurora, IL

Police and City officials are asking that community groups and other organizations that are planning events for National Night Out on August 6, to contact Aurora Police with their plans so that officials can visit as many gatherings as possible.

Contact should be made with either Aurora Police Sgt. Bill Rowley at (630) 256-5325 ( or Sgt. Jim Coursey at (630) 256-5124 (

This year’s National Night Out marks the 30th anniversary of the annual event that encourages citizens to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights, and spend the evening getting to know their neighbors and demonstrate a united front against crime, drugs, and violence.  Each year, Aurora Police officers and City staff members visit local National Night Out events that range from small gatherings to large neighborhood block parties.

Over 37 million people and 15,000 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide participated in National Night Out last year.
