National Night Out
National Night Out is a community-police awareness-raising event held the first Tuesday in October for Texas and the first Tuesday in August for the rest of the country. The event has been held annually since 1984, and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada. National Night Out began simply with neighbors turning on their porch lights and sitting in front of their homes. The first National Night Out involved 2.5 million residents across 400 communities in 23 states. Over the years more communities had acknowledged the program and over 38 million participated in 2016.
Our community participates with events being held at City Hall Fire Department, Apartment Complexes, and Residence Homes. Officers and FVPS Volunteers visit and attend these events.
