National Night Out, an annual, nationwide Neighborhood Watch campaign, is held in early October (Texas only this year). This program promotes involvement in local crime and drug prevention activities, strengthens police-community partnerships, and encourages neighborhood camaraderie as part of our national efforts to let criminals know that America is united and dedicated to building a safer, more caring country. Along with the traditional “lights on” and front porch vigils, cities and towns across America celebrate NNO with a variety of events and activities such as: block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, visits from local police, and safety demonstrations.
National Night Out is held each year to encourage people throughout the nation to come outside and join their neighbors in giving neighborhood crime a “going away” party. Texas is the only state for now that is celebrating this program during the month of October.
National Night Out 2014 will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 5. Register your neighborhood for this year's event today. Registration is free and gives police and other city representatives an opportunity to attend local events as time and circumstances permit. You do NOT have to be a current Neighborhood Watch neighborhood to participate. National Night Out is for everyone! Register now and begin planning your event as soon as possible.
Once your neighborhood is registered we will put you on our list of event sites to visit during the evening. We make every effort to visit as many events as possible. But we can't visit if you don't register!
