Houstonians, get your lawn chairs, coolers and food ready! Join Mayor Annise Parker and the Houston Police Department (HPD) for the 28th Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Take advantage of this opportunity to meet the officers who patrol your neighborhood and help strengthen police and community relations. Thousands of citizens in neighborhoods all over the city are expected to step out of their homes to meet their neighbors and renew their commitment to public safety.
Mayor Parker will be out and about, visiting in a few neighborhoods. Turn on your porch lights, lock your doors, step outside and visit with your neighbors. Neighborhood watches are very effective in battling local crime. Now is a good chance to get together and remind each other to keep an eye out for suspicious activities.
