National Night Out was established in 1984 and is a yearly event designed to build and strengthen the relationships between police officers and the communities they serve. It’s held on the first Tuesday in October in neighborhoods and communities across Texas, whereas the other 49 states participate on the first Tuesday in August. National Night Out encourages neighbors and community members to come together with police officers through block parties, cookouts, and safety demonstrations.
This year, Dallas Chief of Police U. Reneé Hall attended several National Night Out Events throughout the City of Dallas stressing the importance of a good working relationship. National Night Out helps police officers and citizens reason with one another and express concerns on both sides making a stronger community partnership. The turnout for 2018 was fantastic and we ask all to continue to support and participate in National Night Out events.
