The City of Breckenridge and the Breckenridge Police Department will host the annual National Night Out event at the Stephens County Law Enforcement Center, 210 E. Dyer St., on Tuesday, Oct. 3. The local NNO Block Party will take place from 6 to 8 p.m.

The BPD will team up with the Stephens County Sheriff’s Office, Breckenridge Fire Department, Sacred Cross EMS and other first responders and community organizations to present the event that 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 to criminals that the entire community is working together to fight crime. In many parts of the country, NNO takes place in August, but Texas cities host their events in October due to the heat.

Admission to the event will be free and open to the public, and many of the participating organizations will provide free food and drinks. There will also be activities, games, prizes and more, including a child ID/fingerprinting booth, career information and equipment demonstrations. Music will be provided on site by KLXK (K-Lakes FM)/KROO AM.

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

The 200 block of East Dyer Street and the front parking lot of the LEC will be blocked off to provide space for the various booths and displays.
