Come join us Saturday, October 1, 2011, for the NATIONAL NIGHT OUT kickoff event. This event will take place in the parking lot of Target, located at the corner of Briarcrest Drive and Earl Rudder Freeway, 3125 Wildflower Dr. Activities will start at 10:00 AM and end at 1:00 PM.
The Bryan Police Department and the College Station Police Department, along with the Texas A&M University Police Department and the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office will be joined by local fire departments and other organizations at this annual kickoff event. The kickoff is held in preparation for the actual NATIONAL NIGHT OUT event that will occur on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 and will provide citizens with an opportunity to sign up for their own neighborhood block party.
There will be plenty of fun and interesting activities at this family event. If you join us you will find:

The goal of NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is to heighten awareness for crime prevention and drug prevention, to generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and to send a message to criminals letting them know that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
There will be a Proclamation signing for National Night Out at 3:00 PM on Thursday, September 29, 2011 at the Brazos County Annex Building, 200 South Texas Avenue in Bryan. The goal of the Proclamation is for local law enforcement to make a statement that we are coming together with our local citizens to fight crime. It is also a request for citizens to partner with us and sign up for a block party in your neighborhood.
The safety of our community does not have borders. It is the goal of every law enforcement agency to protect the citizens that we serve. Be the eyes and ears of your police department. When you see suspicious activity contact the College Station Police Department at 979-764-3600, the Texas A&M University Police Department at 979-845-2345, or the Bryan Police Department and the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office at 979-361-3888. Together we can make a difference in our community.
