Neighborhood Night Out 2021

On the evening of Thursday, July 15th, 2021, the Cheyenne Police Department will host the 12th annual Neighborhood Night Out; a multiple block party event designed to bring neighbors, businesses and police together to recognize and prevent crime in our community. “Rain or Shine,” the Police will close streets in multiple neighborhoods so residents can have barbecues, entertainment and fun as they meet each other and Cheyenne police officers. SWAT team members, K-9 units, and motorcycles will tour the city neighborhoods demonstrating their special skills and equipment. Neighborhood “Captains” will plan and organize specific block parties with the Police Department. All Food and entertainment are planned and provided by the neighborhood residents with the help of sponsoring Cheyenne businesses, churches and specialty groups.

This is not a fund raiser or charity; it’s an opportunity to get out of your house and meet your cops and neighbors!

Neighborhood Captains: You are the most important element to the success of our Neighborhood Night Out! You will plan and coordinate your block party with the Police Department, recruit neighborhood helpers, and work with a sponsoring business/group to have the best block party in the city! Don’t miss our Block Captain's meeting at the Kiwanis Community House we do every year about a month before the event, keep checking back with us for more information on the date and time!

Cheyenne Businesses, Churches and Groups:
 We need you! There are several ways you can contribute to the Neighborhood Night Out event.  Giving a monetary donation to the event will help us in purchasing the Neighborhood Night Out t-shirts that will be distributed to the many block parties around the city.  If you want to support Neighborhood Night out by taking a more active role , you can host your own block party.  Become a block captain and organize a block party and you will be able to make the party how you want it to be.  If you are looking to help out with the program in another way, we ask that you work with neighborhood captains and generously provide your resources to a block party looking for help. You can determine your assistance, as it may come in many forms such as food/catering, live music, games or child attractions such as blow up jumpers, balloons or water games. The program will recognize every supporting business, church and/or group by every means possible throughout the year.

Every block party will be unique and dynamic. Individual neighborhoods may plan vastly different food, activities and entertainment.

With these newly developed partnerships, Cheyenne Police will work alongside our new friends to increase crime awareness and prevention tactics. Cops and neighbors working together WILL make a difference!
