Woodstock Homes participated in NNO 2011 with over 37 million people in 15,325 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. NNO 2012 is expected to be the largest ever.
National Night Out, a year-long community building campaign, is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
