From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., neighbors throughout Auburn Hills and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on their front porch lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement. 

Along with the traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, most communities celebrate Nation Night Out by hosting block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibts and more. 

Nation Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, "This is a night for our nation to stand together and promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement. When law enforcement and the community work closely together, some amazing things can happen."
