National Night Out, the annual community-building campaign promoting police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie, has been postponed to Tuesday, October 6.

The event is typically held the first Tuesday in August but due to the COVID-19 situation, there will be a delay of two months this year.

The decision to move the event to a later date will help ensure that block parties and events can take place by following the guidance of local public health officials as the  situation changes.

Updated information will be posted as it is available at portlandoregon.gov/civic/63208.

National Night Out face masks are available for purchase at natw.org/product/face-mask.
