National Night Out is a nation-wide initiative held the first Tuesday each August to let the criminals know they are not welcome in our neighborhoods. Coordinated locally by the Rock Hill Police Department, participation in Rock Hill's National Night Out has grown steadily over the years. This past year for 2016 we had yet another record year with 36 neighborhoods participating in the event by holding block parties, ice cream socials, fish frys, barbecues, and back-to-school events! For 2015 we had 32 neighborhoods participate! 28 neighborhoods participated in 2014, 30 neighborhoods participated in 2013, 26 neighborhoods in 2012 and 24 in 2011. In support of our neighborhoods, the City of Rock Hill sends caravans made up of City officials and representatives from Rock Hill Police, Fire, EMT, City Management, Neighborhood Empowerment, etc. out to each neighborhood event. City Council members participate in the visits as well. In 2008, due to the large number of neighborhoods participating, the number of caravans was increased to 3. In 2010 the number of caravans was increased again to 4, due to the record-breaking participation by Rock Hill's neighborhoods and in 2013 the number was increased to 5 with 30 neighborhoods signed up! This year we will again be running 5 caravans of officials and dignitaries for 2017!
