Remember to turn on your porch light this evening in recognition of National Night Out.
Austin will be among the thousands of cities across the country celebrating the 25th Annual National Night Out. This year the Austin Police Department and the Travis County Sherriff’s Office are teaming up for a grand event at the Turner/Roberts Recreation Center at 7201 Colony Loop from 5 to 7 p.m.
Events for the evening are planned to promote crime and drug prevention awareness and to strengthen the police – community partnership. There will also be free food and games for the whole family.
Capital Metro will participate in the event by educating families on the importance of rail safety.
If you can’t make it to the event, you can also participate by socializing with your neighbors and encouraging them to turn their porch light on tonight.
