The first Tuesday in October each year, the entire nation recognizes national night out. In communities throughout America, block parties take place and information is presented on crime prevention and safety awareness. Last year over 450 parties took place in Austin. Police officers, firefighters and EMS visit as many of these parties as possible sharing with the neighbors and learning from each other and sharing ideas. Learn how to participate in this exciting event by calling Rosie Salinas by phone 512-974-4736 or email.
