Fun, fellowship, food and useful information will all be in great supply as Benbrook participates in National Night Out, 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2019, at the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA, 1899 Winscott Road.
Hosted by the Benbrook Police and Fire departments, National Night Out is a nationwide community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and enhances the relationship between law enforcement, citizens and neighborhood groups. The overall goal is to help make communities safer, more caring places to live.
The free event is open to the public and will have something for all ages. Benbrook Police detectives will be demonstrating some of their crime scene investigation methods and exhibit their S.W.A.T. truck with weapons and other equipment. The Benbrook Fire Department will bring a ladder truck, an engine and two ambulances. They also will have an agility course for kids.
Other activities include multiple bounce houses, information from various local civic organizations and businesses and a free raffle drawing. In addition, a catering truck from In-N-Out Burger will provide free meals.
On the National Night Out website, Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is quoted as saying, “The best way to build a safe community is to know your neighbors and your surroundings. National Night Out triumphs over a culture that isolates us from each other and allows us to rediscover our own communities.”
Benbrook National Night Out is always engaging, informative and fun. Mark your calendar now to join us! For more information, contact Benbrook Police Detective Hatton, 817-249-6089.
