Natalia National Night Out Oct. 1

On Tuesday, October 1, neighborhoods all over the United States are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “36th Annual National Night Out” (NNO) crime and prevention event. National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored by Natalia Police Department, will involve over 16,790 communities from all 50 states, US territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 38.6 million people are expected to participate in “America’s Night Out Against Crime.”
National Night Out is designed to; (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
From 6 to 8 p.m. on October 1st, residents in neighborhoods throughout Texas and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. We will be hosting National Night Out as in the past at the Natalia Police Department, 3rd Street. Along with entertainment and activities for the children, there will be free food, drinks and prizes.
We are asking residents to bring canned vegetables, peanut butter or can soup for donation to our local Food Pantry.
Any questions, please call Brenda Fernandez, NNO Coordinator at (830)665-2131 or (210)744-2204.
