National Night Out

 

Schertz Police Department invites you to participate in the 34th annual National Night Out on Tuesday, October 3, 2017.

 

National Night Out, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, is a neighborhood crime and drug prevention event that occurs annually and is celebrated in every city, town and village in the United States. The purpose of the annual event is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.

 

Neighborhoods throughout the community are encouraged to lock the doors, turn on porch lights, gather with neighbors to show unity against criminal activity and join City Council Members, other city officials and public safety personnel. Many neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, swimming parties, cookouts and various other activities.

 

Now is a great time to register your neighborhood for a visit from one of our teams, comprised of a Schertz Council Member, Police representative and other City of Schertz staff.

 

To register your neighborhood, please contact Officer Helen Lafitte at the Police Department. She can be reached at 210-619-1264 or by email at hlafitte@schertz.com. Please provide a point of contact and where your neighborhood will be hosting their block party. Be sure to register early so as to guarantee a visit.
