Salt Lake City, Utah – The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Utah will join community organizers, neighbors, and law enforcement partners to participate in National Night Out, which kicks off celebrations August 1, 2023. During this year’s National Night Out, U.S. Attorney Trina A. Higgins will attend Ogden Police Department’s “Ogden Night Out Against Crime,” on Tuesday, August 8, 2023.

The annual event will take place at Lorin Farr Park in Ogden from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and is free to the public. Ogden’s Night Out is an opportunity to bring law enforcement agencies, resources, and other organizations together to aid in the fight against crime and strengthen neighborhood spirit. There will be booths, food, beverages, prizes, and great local entertainment.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office is committed to strengthening the bonds of partnerships between law enforcement and the communities we serve. Annual events like Ogden’s Night Out Against Crime provide the opportunity for us to build on those efforts and to engage with the community as well,” said U.S. Attorney Trina A. Higgins for the District of Utah.

“The Ogden Police Department is looking forward to the upcoming Night Out Against Crime event. We are grateful for the support of the United States Attorney's Office and are once again excited to interact with our community. As always, we appreciate the community support, and we anticipate this will be another outstanding annual event,” said Lt. William Farr, Ogden City Police Department.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes partnerships and camaraderie between law enforcement and the communities they serve to make our neighborhoods safer places to live. Millions take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities throughout the country on the first Tuesday of August in most areas of the country. 

National Night Out was established in 1984 with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance of the U.S. Department of Justice. The program is administered by the National Association of Town Watch, a nationwide non-profit organization.

Coordinated by local law enforcement and trained volunteers, National Night Out provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Neighborhoods host block parties, cookouts, festivals, parades, safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, and more. National Night Out sends a message that neighbors are united and working together to keep their communities and each other safe.
