UPDATE [8/4/2009 2:37PM] I’m now hearing the PSA 101W NNO walk will begin at 7th & H at 6:30PM rather than Golden Rule.
National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, that takes place on the first Tuesday in August. Each year, the Metropolitan Police Department actively participates in National Night Out by rallying community members throughout the District of Columbia to join with neighbors and police officers in their PSAs to be a part of this annual event.
I’m still trying to track down more hard specifics, but here’s what I’ve heard so far for NNO in the Triangle:
From Lt Royal:
“PSA 101 is going to do a walk from Chinatown to the Golden Rule building (1050 NJ Ave NW) for an ice cream social and then back. Starts at 6:30pm. Residents can use the walk to point out issues to the police”.
Additionally the MVSNA National Night Out group will meet at Safeway at 7:30PM.

From DNA President Miles Groves:
National Night Out is scheduled for tomorrow night, Tuesday, August 4. This year we start with an ice cream social at The Golden Rule Plaza located at 1050 New Jersey Avenue NW at 6:30PM.
Following this “meet and greet” social hour, Lt Craig Royal will partner with members of the 101W neighborhood for a community walk from Golden Rule along the K Street Corridor to Chinatown and back. Throughout the night crime prevention literature and discussions will be held for community members. It will be an opportunity to point out areas of concern along the walk as well as sharing other parts of the neighborhood that deserve greater focus. This is a great opportunity to meet with neighbors, walk the neighborhood, and discuss issues with police officers responsible for the downtown neighborhood.
This is an important way to show our support for our neighborhood police officers, so please try to attend.
