National Night Out will take place this year on Tuesday, October 1, 2019. The annual nationwide crime prevention event is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and is designed to: (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnership; and (3) send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Residents are encouraged to take part by holding block parties, cook outs, or other outdoor activities to help build strong bonds with their neighbors and police.
The deadline to register an event is Friday, September 27, 2019. Participation forms are available for pick up in the Bossier City Police Department lobby at 620 Benton Road or at the Bossier City Public Safety Training Complex at 5850 Shed Road. Forms can also be downloaded here.
