The Victoria Police Department’s Community Engagement Unit is inviting Victoria neighborhoods and apartment complexes to participate in National Night Out, an evening of block parties hosted throughout the nation to strengthen police-community relations and improve neighborhood fellowship.
National Night Out will be Tuesday, Oct. 5. Residents who would like to host a block party and receive a visit from first responders should contact the Community Engagement Unit at 361-485-3808 or PoliceCEU@victoriatx.gov.
“These parties are a great way for residents to meet their neighbors and the officers who serve them,” said Community Engagement Officer John Turner. “If you’ve hosted a party before, we’d love to have you back, and if this is your first year to participate, we can help you to host a successful event.”
The Victoria Police Department will also host a National Night Out Kick-Off Party on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Deleon Plaza. The kickoff party is a free family-friendly event featuring entertainment from area youth, children’s activities and information from local community groups.
