The Rowlett Police Department invites you and your neighborhood to participate in National Night Out, an annual event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch.
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and to send a message to criminals letting them know that citizens are organized and fighting back.
Residents throughout the community are encouraged to turn on the porch light, lock the door and gather with neighbors to show unity against criminal activity. Many neighborhoods plan special events such as block parties, swimming parties and cookouts. If yours is one of those, the Rowlett Police, Fire Rescue, Parks and Rec, and Public Works Departments would love the opportunity to drop in and visit with everyone. They can bring the SWAT vehicle, squad cars, fire engines, large construction vehicles and more for kids (and adults!) to climb on, into and enjoy. Members of the City Council and City staff will also be dropping in on all the celebrations!
Please contact Community Services Officer Mitchell for more information or to register your neighborhood.
