Name: National Night Out
Date: October 1, 2019
Time: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM CDT
Event Description:
Neighbors throughout Brown County are being invited to join together for the 2019 National Night Out (NNO) crime and drug prevention event on Tuesday, October 1st. 

Coordinators of the local NNO event are currently looking for block captains to organize small gatherings in neighborhoods in Brown County.  These gatherings will be a rallying point where neighbors can meet each other, visit with law enforcement officials, and send a message to potential criminals. 

From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on October 1st, residents in neighborhoods throughout Brown County are asked to spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.  Many neighborhoods throughout the area will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, visits from police, contests, and other activities.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, 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 fighting back. 

As in years past, participants are asked to bring a can of tuna to benefit the Good Samaritan Food Pantry. The block party that collects the most cans will be awarded the Traveling Tuna Trophy and will keep it until next year's event.

Representatives from the Brownwood Police Department, Brown County Sheriff's Office, Early Police Department,  Bangs Police Department, area fire departments, and city officials will travel around Brownwood, Early, Bangs  and Brown County during the event to visit these gatherings and speak to those in attendance. They will pick up the cans of tuna and deliver to Good Samaritan that evening.
