National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. This year, Texas residents will celebrate the 32nd Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016. Every year, Pearland 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 Pearland 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 will all occur simultaneously throughout the city and nationwide.
