On Tuesday, August 2, 2011 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, citizens in neighborhoods across Texarkana, Arkansas will be turning their lights on and getting together with friends and neighbors for an evening outside to celebrate the 28th Annual NATIONAL NIGHT OUT.
In 2010 over 37 million people from over 15,110 communities across the United States participated in National Night Out last year. The National Night Out has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and community partnerships.
National Night Out, a year-long community building campaign, is designed to: (1) Heighten crime prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Representatives from the Police Department, Fire Department, and City Hall will start our visits this year at approximately 6:00pm. Well be available for questions and you can share your concerns about police services in your neighborhood.
If you are interested in participating in this exceptional community event, please call and register your party at 903-824-4199 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dont delay!
Thank you and you can visit the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department online at http://www.txkusa.org/arkpolice.
