National Night Out returns to Waterfront Park
after the runaway success for the city's 2013 event
The Clermont Police Department will present its runaway success story from 2013 when National Night Out returns to Waterfront Park. The event takes place Tuesday, August 5 from 5 to 8pm and is free to everyone.

National Night Out had been held in local communities in the past, but last year it was moved to the city's waterfront location. With more parking, easy access and a lot more activities, the project was a hit that drew thousands of visitors where there was free food, safety demonstrations, local vendors and kids activities.

Law enforcement, fire safety, emergency medical and other agencies were on hand to meet the public.

The introduction of National Night Out, "America's Night Out Against Crime", in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. The National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August.

The first National Night Out took place on Tuesday, August 7 1984. That first year, 2.5 million Americans took part across 400 communities in 23 states.
