Make Plans Now for National Night Out 2014! 

On Tuesday, October 7th, 2014, neighborhoods throughout the city of Alvin are invited to join forces with communities statewide for the 31st Annual “National Night Out.”  National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and, for the 23nd consecutive year, is being co-sponsored by the Alvin Police Department.  Millions of people have already participated in “America’s Night Out Against Crime” in August, and for the seventh year in a row Alvin, Texas, along with many other Texas communities, is pleased to participate in October.  

National Night Out 2014 is designed to: (1) heighten crime prevention awareness; (2) generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts; (3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

From 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 7th, 2014, residents in neighborhoods throughout the city of Alvin are being asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors.  Many neighborhoods will be hosting block parties, barbecues, covered-dish dinners, and enjoying visits from members of the Alvin Police Department, the Alvin Volunteer Fire Department, the Alvin EMS, and many other community leaders.

Last year there were twenty-nine separate National Night Out parties within the city of Alvin, involving several hundreds of people.  We are proud of that effort and believe the unity shared that one evening has benefited those neighborhoods and our community throughout the previous year.  The continued safety of our community depends upon neighbors watching out for each other.  Chief of police Robert E. Lee says, “National Night Out is a perfect opportunity for neighbors to meet and affirm, or reaffirm, their commitment to keeping our neighborhoods safe and crime free. I encourage each and every citizen to participate in this year’s National Night Out events and to take a proactive stand against crime in our community.”

If you and your neighbors would like to participate in National Night Out 2014, please register by calling Alvin Police Crime Prevention Officer Ruben Solano at (281) 585-7124.  Registration is free and places your neighborhood on a roster of participants.  This roster informs the police officers and other public servants of the many participating neighborhoods and helps them visit as many events as time permits.  CPO Solano encourages all neighborhoods to participate and says, “National Night Out is a great time for everyone, we’re hoping for another great year.”
