Texarkana plans for National Night Out to promote safe neighborhoods

It's almost time for National Night Out, and people all across the city of Texarkana are planning for the big evening.

Texarkana, Arkansas has already announced their plans.

On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, citizens in neighborhoods across Texarkana will be turning their lights on and getting together with friends and neighbors for an evening outside to celebrate the 36th National Night Out.

According to the Texarkana, Arkansas Police Department, The National Night Out has proven to be an active, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote “neighborhood spirit” and “community partnerships.”

But the event is not just about one night. It is actually a year-long process of community-building campaigns designed to:

  1. Heighten crime prevention awareness; 
  2. Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; 
  3. Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; 
  4. Send a message to criminals, letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.  

Representatives from the Police Department, Fire Department, and City Hall of Texarkana, Arkansas will start their visits this year at approximately 6:00 pm.  They will be available for questions, and you can ask questions about police services in your neighborhood.

Editor's note: If you are interested in participating in this community event in Texarkana, Arkansas, call and register your party at 903-798-3187 or by email at kbennett@txkusa.org.
