Allen Police officers will be visiting neighborhood block parties during the annual National Night Out (NNO) on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
Each year, Allen joins hundreds of other communities around Texas to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The event is a great way to get to know your neighbors and send a message to would-be criminals that your neighborhood is well-organized and protected.
NNO events have been around for 35 years and are designed to heighten crime/drug prevention awareness, generate participation in local anti-crime programs and strengthen neighborhood spirit.
To find out if your neighborhood has an event planned or to register your event, contact Sergeant Jon Felty (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Officer Chris Hester (email@example.com) of the Community Relations Unit.
