Killeen, Texas (KWKT) — On Tuesday, October 1, 2013, neighborhoods throughout Killeen are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities across the United States for the 30th Annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event.
This event is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in local anti crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and are fighting back.
From 6 to 9 p.m., residents throughout Killeen are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Neighborhoods are encouraged to host a variety of events such as block parties, cookouts, contests and youth activities.
Call and register your neighborhood so they will get a visit from the police department, fire department, and McGruff the Crime Dog.
If anyone would like to register their neighborhood or find out more information on the event contact Tammy Moseley at 501-8805.
