The Cheyenne Police Department (CPD) Thursday, July 15, 2021, will host the 12th Annual Neighborhood Night Out.

National Night Out is a community-building event that brings neighbors, businesses, and police together in partnership against crime in Cheyenne.

The CPD will kick off this year’s Neighborhood Night Out by hosting a Block Captain planning meeting at the Cheyenne Public Safety Center (415 W. 18 St.) at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 3.  Anyone interested in hosting a block party is encouraged to participate.

This meeting will be informational and feature an open discussion for sharing fun block party ideas, whether someone has hosted a block party in the past or is interested in hosting a party this year. This meeting is an opportunity to begin the process and plan a special event for your neighborhood.

Each year, neighborhood “Block Captains” organize specific block parties featuring cookouts, live music, and entertainment provided by neighborhood residents with the help of sponsoring Cheyenne businesses, churches, and specialty groups.

“Neighborhood Night Out is a great way to get to know others in your community and have fun,” Public Information Officer Alexandra Farkas said. “When neighbors can meet and connect with one another and the officers that serve them, we are able to work together to prevent crime.”
