Meet Your City’s First Responders During ‘National Night Out’ – October 6th

National Night Out (NNO) is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. This year, Texas residents will celebrate the 31st Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015. Every year, residents come out by the hundreds to join their neighbors at neighborhood block parties all across the city.

National Night Out is designed to:
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support and participation in crime efforts
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations
  • Let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
During the event, residents in neighborhoods throughout Texas and across the nation are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters and EMS paramedics. Events such as cookouts, block parties and neighborhood walks are examples of what might be planned throughout the city and nationwide.

For more information about National Night Out in your neighborhood, please contact your local Police Department. To learn more about NNO and the commmunity-buliding, view the programs website.

Brockway Realty maintains a Community Calendar on their website; check this calendar for events/activities in your city.
