On Tuesday, Aug. 6, neighborhoods nationwide will be participating in the 36th Annual “National Night Out” (NNO) crime and drug prevention event, but New Holstein’s NNO event will be on Friday, Aug. 16.

National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by the New Holstein Police Department, will involve over 16,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. tenitories, Canadian cities, and military bases around the world. 

Residents in neighborhoods throughout New Holstein and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.
