The City of Breckenridge and the Breckenridge Police Department will host the eighth annual National Night Out in Breckenridge from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, at the Stephens County Law Enforcement Center, 210 E. Dyer St.

The local event is part of the National Night Out, which is designed to strengthen community spirit and partnerships with law enforcement and first responders, generate support for community organizations and programs, raise crime prevention awareness, and send a strong message that everyone in the community is working together to fight back against crime.

Many other states celebrate NNO in August, but Texas celebrates in October due to the heat.

Admission to the event is free. Breckenridge PD, Stephens County Sheriff’s Office, Breckenridge Fire Department and others will provide free food, drinks, activities and prizes, as well as child ID/fingerprinting. Classic country music will be provided on site by KLXK/KROO radio stations, and there will be equipment demonstrations and career information available.

The 200 block of East Dyer Street and the front parking lot of the LEC will be blocked off for the event.

Some of the groups expected to participate this year include the Breckenridge Police Department and 9-1-1 Call Center, Stephens County Sheriff’s Office, Breckenridge Fire Department and Code Enforcement, AIR EVAC Lifeteam, Texas Department of Public Safety, Child Protective Services, Adult Protective Services, Stephens Memorial Hospital District, Sacred Cross EMS, Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife, Stephens County Animal Welfare Center, Dr. Goodall’s House-CAC/CASA, Stephens County adult and juvenile probation office, city/county/district court officers, MHMR/Betty Hardwick Center, Central West Texas COG, Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts, Texas State Technical College and local civic and business organizations.
