National Night Out

National Night Out Logo for 2022

For 37 years, the City of Havelock has participated in the annual National Night Out event. The event was established to help bring the community and law enforcement agencies together by creating an avenue for citizens and law enforcement to discuss issues in the community, discuss crime prevention and to talk about general concerns citizens may have. When the event started in 1981, only a select few cities participated. Now over 16,000 agencies across the U.S. participate in the annual event.

Over the years, the Havelock Police Department has tailored the National Night Out event towards not just a partnership between citizens and law enforcement, but bringing as many community organizations to the event as possible. We feel it is extremely important for citizens to know what resources are available in the area. We invite community organizations offering a wide range of services: sports, arts and crafts, drug awareness, drug rehabilitation, Scouts, DSS, Craven County Smart Start and the list goes on.

Many Local, State and Federal agencies are invited to the event as well. Agencies such as USMC Provost Marshal Office, N.C. State Highway Patrol, Craven County Sheriff's Office, N.C. Wildlife, NCIS Cherry Point and many others participate and bring information and resources for the community to view.

Over the past 6-7 years, we have cancelled the event many times or it was cut short because of severe weather, as the month of August is well known for late afternoon storms. In an effort to ensure the event is held, and provide these resources to the community, we have scheduled Havelock's National Night Out event on Tuesday October 4, 2022. The month of October is a recognized back-up month for National Night Out events.

On behalf of the City of Havelock, I would like to thank the agencies and our sponsors who have partnered with us through the years for helping us make National Night Out a huge success. We look forward to October and making our 38th annual National Night Out event our biggest yet!
