Tuesday, Oct. 7, has been designated as National Night Out (NNO) in Texas, and the Bandera County Sheriff's Office is encouraging neighbors to come together by hosting an evening gathering in their neighborhood or on their block.
From 6 pm to 8 pm that evening, residents in neighborhoods across Bandera County are asked to spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement officers. The block parties can range from games and bounce houses for the kids to barbecues - and everything in between.
National Night Out is a nationwide effort to bring communities together to combat crime. In 2013, the National Night Out campaign celebrated its 30th anniversary. In conjunction with law enforcement agencies, volunteer fire departments, other first responders and citizens across the county, this event features neighbors reaching out to others in true National Night Out fashion.
Bandera County Sheriff Dan Butts said, "This is a night for Bandera County to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of law enforcement, community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight to build a safer community".
To request a BCSO deputy attend a community or subdivision gathering to discuss neighborhood concerns and safety issues, contact the sheriff's office by calling 830-796-4323 or email bcsheriff@indian-creek.net.
