National Night Out 2015 in Texas is Tuesday, October 6th, with neighborhood parties from 7 PM to 9 PM. National Night Out (NNO) is a great opportunity for neighbors to get to know one another and to strengthen neighborhood relationships with our first responders: police officers, fire department, and EMS.
We encourage you to participate in this year’s National Night Out by having a front-yard party with your neighbors. Organizing a National Night Out party is easy – just invite your closest neighbors or your entire block to gather in your front yard. In the past, neighbors have hosted ice cream parties, cookouts, dessert gatherings, and other front-yard events. Some have a fire truck visit them; others have an APD officer or EMS vehicle.
When you register your party with the Austin Police Department, you can request a visit from a public safety agency. To register, visit this web site: https://www.austintexas.gov/nno
Follow the link provided there to complete the application online by the end of day September 11 or print the form and mail it to: Austin Police Department, Office of Community Liaison, Attn: Rosie Salinas, P. O. Box 689001, Austin, Texas 78768-9001
You can also get crime prevention and fire safety information to distribute at your party, as well as small goodies contributed by National Night Out sponsors. On Saturday, October 3, there will be a National Night Out Kickoff Party and Barbecue Cook-Off at the Mueller Airport Lake, 4550 Mueller Blvd, from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM. There will be food, music, games, and packets of handouts for those who have registered their parties. check out NNO Kickoff flyer for details.
