Night Out Against Crime - 2016

National Night Out is a celebration of community and police partnerships in crime prevention. The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office has participated in National Night Out for the past six years.

Tangipahoa Parish celebrated the 6th Annual National Night Out Against crime, drug, and violence prevention program sponsored by Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa on October 29, 2016. The event was held from 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in Ponchatoula, La. Night Out Against Crime attracts hundreds of Tangipahoa Parish residents and visitors from surrounding areas.

The purpose of National Night Out is to build strong partnerships between law enforcement and communities and to promote crime awareness programs such as Neighborhood Community Watch groups.

Each year it becomes abundantly clear that without the community’s help, Night Out Against Crime would not be possible.
