National Night OutFeatured Stories, News Friday, September 21st, 2012
As the weather gets cooler, the College Station Police Department is encouraging neighbors to get together for an evening of food and fun by throwing block parties as part of National Night Out.
Lieutenant Craig Anderson says National Night Out will be held the first Tuesday in October, but now’s the time to sign up to throw your own block party.
Anderson says there are about twenty parties registered already, but they usually have between thirty-five and forty and the deadline to register is Wednesday, September 26, by five.
Anderson says that the parties not only familiarize neighbors with one another so that it’s easier to notice and report suspicious activity, but they also send the message to criminals that crime won’t be tolerated in the community.
He says officers will be popping in to meet residents and give badges to kids at parties all over the Brazos Valley.
He says they’re here for the citizens, and they want to encourage them to watch out for each other and keep the neighborhoods safe.
Along with CSPD, the Bryan Police Department, Brazos County Sheriff’s Department, and Texas A & M University Police Department will all be participating, Anderson says.
For more details, call Lt. Anderson at 764-3610, or Sgt. Calder Lively at 764-3624 .
Participation forms can be emailed, faxed, or dropped off at the police department.
