GALVESTON, TX – Sept. 10, 2018 – Isle neighborhoods for a night next month will host block parties and community cookouts to bring residents together with local law enforcement and first responders.

Galveston joins communities across the country in celebrating National Night Out – an annual community-police relationship building and awareness campaign. The event is organized by the Galveston Police Department and will be held in neighborhoods across Galveston on the night of Tuesday, Oct. 2.

“One of the best ways to prevent crime is by knowing your neighborhood and having a relationship with your neighbors and first responders,” said Lt. Clint Stevens, organizer for this year’s National Night Out. “By attending National Night Out you’re helping build a stronger, safer community.”

National Night Out is in its 35th year operating as an event to prevent crime, generate support for anti-crime initiatives, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and relationships between communities and police.

Depending on how the neighborhood decides to celebrate, festivities may include potlucks, cookouts or family-friendly demonstrations by first responders and local law enforcement.  To find out what’s happening in your neighborhood, please call (409) 765-3606 or email nationalnightout@galvestontx.gov.
