On Tuesday, Aug. 30, Longview residents are invited to a kick-off celebration held at the Longview Exhibit Center for the annual National Night Out (NNO) crime and drug prevention event. During this event, citizens are encouraged to attend for a night of fun and to learn how to host a successful neighborhood party for the upcoming National Night Out event on the first Tuesday in October.
The City of Longview, the Longview Police Department, Longview Fire Department, Partners in Prevention and the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office proudly coordinate NNO each year. Parties can be as simple as hanging out with friends and enjoying some good food. In the past, some parties have had pony rides, dunking booths, music, and clowns. Take the first step in bringing your neighborhood closer together and making it a safer place by registering your party.
National Night Out unites communities and local law enforcement by holding annual parties to encourage neighbors to get to know their neighbors, to build a partnership between the police and the community, and to educate everyone on crime prevention. All this is done with the main goal of creating a safer place to live.
The National Night Out Kick-Off Party will be held at the Longview Exhibit Center on Tuesday, Aug. 30, starting at 6 p.m., and National Night Out parties will be held Tuesday, Oct. 4.
