Registration Meeting Scheduled for National Night Out

Lubbock United Neighborhood Association and Lubbock Police Department's Neighborhood Services Department will host a registration meeting for National Night Out on Tuesday, June 5. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at St. John's United Methodist Church in the Garden Room at 1500 University Avenue. This meeting is open to anyone who is interested in having a National Night Out Event.

Registration for this year's National Night Out event will provide a unique opportunity for anyone who is planning to host a National Night Out event, whether large or small.

Participants may register their event and request City officials, Lubbock Police officers, K-9 Units, Lubbock Mounted Horse Patrol, City Firemen, and others to attend and speak at their National Night Out event.

Participants are encouraged to bring the specifics of their events, since this will be the only chance to request City officials to attend.

Celebrating its 24th year, National Night Out was created to get citizens involved in "giving crime and drugs a going away party."

National Night Out was designed to:

  • heighten crime and drug prevention awareness,
  • generate support for, and participate in, local anticrime programs,
  • strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships,
  • send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Scheduled annually on the first Tuesday in August, this year's National Night Out  will be celebrated on Tuesday, August 7 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Residents in neighborhoods throughout Lubbock and across the nation are encouraged to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Each year neighborhoods throughout Lubbock host a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, visits from local police and fire departments, carnivals, ice cream socials and the like. The benefits derived from National Night Out continue to benefit the community well beyond the one night.

Take this first step in fighting crime in your neighborhood. Whether or not you live in an area where there is an established neighborhood association, get involved and become aware of things going on in your neighborhood. Getting to know your neighbors is a step in the right direction in helping to fight crime. Crime knows no boundaries.
