National Night Out Postponed for 2020

National Night Out, the annual event that promotes community partnerships and camaraderie between residents and police, has been postponed for 2020 because of the public health emergency.

The Las Cruces police and fire departments, in partnership with the City of Las Cruces and first responders from throughout the county, have held the event the first Tuesday of August for the past several years. The event has been held along the Downtown Mall and has been well received each year by thousands of participants.

Organizers hope to resume hosting National Night Out in 2021.
