Registration Underway for National Night Out 2021

This year’s National Night Out in Texas is set for the evening of Tuesday, October 5th, 2021, and registration for that event in New Braunfels is now underway.

While National Night Out happens in August for much of the nation, there are several states, including Texas, that wait for slightly cooler temperatures to hold their National Night Out events.  

National Night Out began in 1984 and, at the time, the focus of the event was mostly symbolic. By turning on front porch lights and waving to neighbors, the goal was to get residents out of their homes to show a united front against crime. Over the years, the goal remains the same, but the event has expanded to include street closures for large block parties, potlucks, interactive games, live music, and visits from police officers, firefighters, and government officials.

“New Braunfels is always a very active participant in National Night Out with dozens of streets and neighborhood block parties,” said New Braunfels Chief of Police Keith Lane. “We hope that the community uses this opportunity to connect with their neighbors and discuss ways to prevent crime in their neighborhood as part of the larger effort to keep the New Braunfels community safe.”

If your street or neighborhood is planning on participating in this year’s National Night Out event, registration is now underway online. Registering your block party is not required, but it is the only way to request street barricades or visits from the Police Department, Fire Department, or City officials during your party. The deadline to register for this year’s National Night Out in New Braunfels is Tuesday, Sept. 28th and is available by using the 2021 National Night Out Online Registration Form.  

For more information, please visit the National Night Out in New Braunfels website or contact NBPD Community Affairs Officer Lucas Crawford at 830-221-4166 or lcrawford@nbtexas.org.
