On National Night Out, neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other community events.

Texans will celebrate the 36th annual National Night Out on Oct. 1.

The Fort Worth Police Department invites all residents to participate in the celebration. Residents are asked to turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outdoors with their neighbors, public safety officers and other city personnel.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide. To take advantage of cooler temperatures, Texas celebrates the event on the first Tuesday in October.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten awareness of crime prevention.
  • 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 against crime.
