The City of Bryan’s Vital Statistics Office was recently honored by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, and staff members were presented with the award at the Bryan City Council meeting on Jan. 14, 2020.
The Bryan Police Department was selected as a City Award winner by the National Association of Town Watch for its participation in National Night Out 2019. This is the fifth year in a row that the Bryan Police Department has received recognition for this accomplishment.
The National Night Out All Star Awards are selected annually by the National Association of Town Watch to honor individuals, organizations or programs for outstanding participation, leadership and/or assistance during the National Night Out campaign.
Bryan’s National Night Out event encouraged neighborhoods to hold block parties with visits from BPD officers, with the intention of neighbors getting to know each other better. BPD also partnered with College Station Police Department and other area agencies to host a National Night Out Kick Off event preceding the National Night Out event.
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, generate community participation in crime prevention programs, strengthen police – community partnerships, and send a message to criminals that communities are organized and fighting back. This year’s event involved over 38 million people in over 16,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide.
