Weatherford PD plans for annual National Night Out

On Tuesday, Oct. 1st, neighborhoods throughout Weatherford will join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “30th Annual National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event.

National Night Out involves more than 9,500 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, more than 32 million people are expected to participate.

National Night Out is designed to:

• Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.

• Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts.

• Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.

• Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

In Weatherford, many block parties are registered with the police department to spend the evening outside with their neighbors. Events will include visits from Weatherford’s police officers, firefighters, McGruff the Crime Dog and members of the Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association.

According to local Project Coordinator Det. Beth Turnbow, “National Night Out is a wonderful way to build neighborhood unity and strengthen police-community partnerships. Neighbors meet neighbors – and citizens and local law enforcement have the opportunity to enhance their relationships.”

If you are a city of Weatherford resident and would like to host a block party, contact Turnbow at 817-594-4419 for assistance in getting organized.
