Neighborhood Block Parties
Annual National Night Out” (NNO) has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 3,
2017 from 6pm to 9pm.
The Copperas Cove Police Department cordially invites all
neighborhoods in Copperas Cove to be part of our NATIONAL NIGHT OUT 2017 team,
designed to: (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) generate support for,
and participation in, local anti-crime programs; (3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and policecommunity
partnership; and (4) send a message to the criminals letting them know that
neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
For the 20th consecutive year we are asking
residents in neighborhoods to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening
outside with neighbors and police. Suggestions for outdoor functions include, but are not
limited to: block parties, cookouts, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and anti-crime
and drug rallies.
Last year's National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic
groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 16,000
communities from all U.S. states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases
In all, over 37 million people participated in National Night Out 2016.
