The Piqua Police Department has decided to cancel our 2020 National Night Out (NNO) celebration.
The uncertainty of the pandemic does not allow us to properly plan an NNO celebration which ensures the safety of all participants.
National Night Out culminates annually on the first Tuesday in August. This year, due to the pandemic, the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), which sponsors National Night Out, encouraged police departments to postpone events until October. Initially, we thought the delay would be enough time to get a plan in place to allow us to celebrate NNO and keep everyone safe from the virus. Even with social distancing and wearing a face mask we cannot be sure everyone will be safe.
We want to thank you for all of our past NNO memories, and we look forward to 2021 when we hope we will be able to safely gather together again.
