National Night Out

National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event meant to improve Police-Community relations. The event is held on the first Tuesday in August throughout the United States. The event is coordinated by the National Association of Town Watch.  National Night Out started in 1983 and has grown annually. Rolling Meadows first participated in NNO 2013 and has participated every year since. 

The Rolling Meadows Police Department in coordination with the Rolling Meadows Park District holds this event at the Community Center located at 3705 Pheasant. As a matter of fact in 2017 the Rolling Meadows Park District was dedicated with a National Night Out sign by Chief Nowacki and Mayor Len Prejna as the dedicated site for National Night Out.

The Rolling Meadows Police Department always strives to improve upon the previous year’s events by adding activities that highlight community involvement as well as promote a public safety message. 

Some of the activities that are held during National Night Out include the following and we try to change things every year: 

  • Jump House
  • Staley the Chicago Bears Mascot
  • Windy City Game Theater 
  • Dog Stunt Show
  • Travelling Reptile Display  
  • Fireworks
  • DJ and Music
  • Local Community Sponsorship Groups
  • Free Food Snacks & Fun for all 
       Medieval Times have told us they will be back in 2018!

Rolling Meadows won Rookie of the year in 2014 and then competed for the National Awards in 2015 and 2016 and was awarded as one of the leading departments in the National Night Out Awards competition and plan on participating for this prestigious award again for 2017. 

National Night Out is always the first Tuesday of August. Make sure you always mark it on your calendar and join us each year.
