National Night Out
The Rowlett Police Department encourages residents to register their neighborhoods for National Night Out on Oct. 5.
Residents throughout the community are encouraged to turn on their porch lights, lock the door and gather with neighbors to show unity against criminal activity.
Many neighborhoods plan special events including block parties and cookouts. The Rowlett Police, Fire Rescue and Public Works Departments will visit neighborhoods who host events on National Night out to build relations with residents. Kids will have an opportunity to see the SWAT vehicle, squad cars, fire engines and large construction vehicles among others. Members of the City Council and City staff will also drop in on the celebration.
National Night Out is an annual event designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and to organize residents in mitigating crime.
Neighborhoods can be registered through Officer Dana Reeves in the Police Department’s Community Services Division
