As the temperatures cool, we prepare for the National Night Out event in our neighborhoods every year. Unfortunately, we will not be visiting or meeting our neighbors.
Texarkana Texas Police have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.
It was a tough decision
The Texarkana Texas Police Department posted on their Facebook page:
In light of the growing number of COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths in our area, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s National Night Out event on October 5 in Texarkana, TX. Like many of you, we were eager to have the chance to visit your neighborhood. However, we ultimately decided that we had to prioritize the health and safety of the community and our officers.
Will they have the event next year?
They said they were looking forward to their National Night Out event in 2022. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
National Night Out is a campaign that promotes police, community and neighborly relations to help make our neighborhoods safer.
