San Marcos residents are invited to participate in the 2018 National Night Out (NNO) on Tuesday, Oct. 2, by visiting with neighbors, police officers, EMS personnel, firefighters, and City officials to advance crime prevention in the community.
Registration is open until Sept. 24 for neighborhoods wishing to participate. Information and registration forms can be found online at www.sanmarcostx.gov/nno.
People with questions about NNO events in their neighborhood should contact their neighborhood representative.
During National Night Out, neighborhoods host porch-sitting and “lights on” areas and sponsor special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from law enforcement, rallies and marches.
The nationwide program is a popular and effective vehicle for heightening awareness of crime prevention strategies, enhancing police-community relations, and bolstering volunteer morale.
