Overland Park Police Department recognizes NNO on the first Tuesday in August. However, many residents prefer the October date to socialize with officers and celebrate community-building in the promotion of police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
Therefore, neighborhoods wanting to interact with COPPS officers in October, are encouraged to put on a "Safety Social" the first Tuesday of October. Registration is free by signing up.
Neighborhood leaders can apply for a FREE NNO (Safety Social) kit by visiting the official NNO website: https://natw.org/.
