ROYSE CITY, TX (July 6, 2022) For most of the country, National Night Out is celebrated on the first Tuesday in August. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. The problem with the first Tuesday in August here in Texas is it feels like we are living on the surface of the sun. To beat the heat, the Texas Chiefs got together a few years back and moved National Night Out in Texas to the first Tuesday of October when it is cooler and much more enjoyable. This year’s National Night Out will be on October 4, 2022.
These block parties are meant to be simple events geared towards getting to know your neighbors and speaking to local leaders and police officers about crime prevention and other topics that are important to you and your neighborhood. If you live in the city and are interested in hosting or co-hosting a National Night Out Block Party in your neighborhood and would like a visit from the first responders and local officials, please contact Lt. Ray Fitzwater at 972-524-4776 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you registered.
