National Night Out kickoff scheduled

GREENVILLE — Early next month, residents in neighborhoods across Greenville will be spending an evening outside, learning how to fight crime.

But one week from tonight, they will be having a party.

The Greenville Police Department is participating in the 2013 National Night Out Program on Oct. 1.

On Sept. 24, the National Night Out Kick-off party will be held at the Greenville SportsPark, starting at 6 p.m. The event will include a community resource fair, free hotdogs, children’s games, and bounce houses.

The annual charity softball game between the Greenville Police Department and the Greenville Fire-Rescue Department, benefiting the Crisis Center of North Texas begins at 7 p.m., with donations for the Crisis Center accepted between innings.

All activities are free and the public is encouraged to attend.

The National Night Out is sponsored each year by the National Association of Town Watch to encourage people in neighborhoods across the country to come together and get to know each other, while meeting with law enforcement authorities and learning ways how to prevent crime, drug abuse and violence in their communities.

Traditionally, the National Night Out is conducted on the first Tuesday night in August, although the national organization has allowed Texas to conduct activities on an officially recognized alternative date on the first Tuesday in October.

The city of Greenville has hosted the National Night Out in October twice before, last year and in 2007.

Greenville has received several awards from the organization in the past, recognizing the city’s event as among the best in the nation for cities with populations between 15,000 and 49,999 residents.

Those community service agencies or non-profits wishing to participate in the Community Resource Fair may contact Officer Chris McCaslin at 903-457-2998 or cmccaslin@ci.greenville.tx.us. McCaslin is also the contact for anyone wanting more information on the National Night Out or hosting a neighborhood event.
