The Village of Arlington Heights event has received national recognition every year from 2005 to 2011. The Arlington Heights event is compared to other events in jurisdictions with populations between 50,000 and 99,000. The Arlington Heights NNO celebration has moved up the rankings each year. In 2011 our event was ranked 15th nationally and the highest in Illinois for our category.

National Night Out will be bigger and better in 2012. The following will be part of the event:

• Illinois CHIP Program sponsored by the Illinois Masons will provide parents with a free disc containing their child’s fingerprints, photograph and voice sample. A DNA sample can also be requested.

• The Arlington Heights Police Department K-9 unit will conduct a full demonstration which includes bite and drug work. There will also be police representatives from the following specialty assignments: Accident Reconstruction, Financial Crimes, Child Safety Seat technicians, Crime Prevention, Forensics, Traffic, and Animal Welfare.

• The Arlington Heights Fire Department will conduct a repelling victim rescue demonstration. They will also have several vehicles on display.
