Bond with neighbors.Build community partnerships. Promote crime-free neighborhoods.

National Night Out is a nationwide initiative encouraging residents to turn their porch lights on and organize block parties, sending a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are fighting back. By strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and heightening crime and drug prevention awareness, National Night Out unites residents to “Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs a Going Away Party.” 

Neighborhoods that organize National Night Out Block Parties from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, will be eligible to compete for the annual Flower Mound Neighborhood of the Year award. The winning neighborhood will receive a street sign proclaiming the neighborhood as the 2016 National Night Out Neighborhood of the Year. Registered block parties could receive visits from members of the Town Council, the Flower Mound Police Department, fire trucks, the Fire Department Clowns, and McGruff the Crime Dog. Street barricades will also be provided upon request.

Once again this year, children grades kindergarten through fifth, are invited to participate in a poster contest. Contestants are encouraged to use their imagination and create a masterpiece that falls into the theme: First Responder Favorites! Children will be split into age divisions and the first place winners of each division will receive a prize. Full contest rules can be found here. 
Kids poster contest entries will only be accepted at the Flower Mound Police Department, 4150 Kirkpatrick Lane, in person on September 26 and 27 from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. and September 28 from 8 a.m. until noon. Late entries will not be accepted. All posters must be submitted with an entry form, so that judges may contact the winning artists.

All block parties must be registered by September 30 at 5 p.m., please 
download an application, e-mail officer Justin Buck at , or call 972.874.3357.  Please visit www.natw.org for more information and block party ideas.
