On Tuesday, Oct. 2, neighborhoods throughout Longview are being invited to plan neighborhood parties for the “35th Annual National Night Out” (NNO) crime and drug prevention event.
The City of Longview, the Longview Police Department, Partners in Prevention and the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office proudly coordinate this annual event for the first Tuesday in October. Parties can be as simple as hanging out with friends and enjoying some good food. In the past, some parties have had pony rides, dunking booths, music, and clowns. Take the first step in bringing your neighborhood closer together and making it a safer place by registering your party.
National Night Out unites communities and local law enforcement by holding annual parties to encourage neighbors to get to know their neighbors, to build a partnership between the police and the community and to educate everyone on crime prevention. All this is done with the main goal of creating a safer place to live.
Thanks to everyone’s efforts. Last year, Longview placed 11th for a community with a population size ranging from 100,000 – 300,000. This year we would love to see even more parties hosted.
