The Benbrook Police and Fire Departments, along with the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA, are giving crime and drugs a going-away party on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the 30th Annual NATIONAL NIGHT OUT Against Crime and Drugs event.
Benbrook’s NATIONAL NIGHT OUT 2013 is a free event that takes place at the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA, 1899 Winscott Road, and includes food, fun, and activities for the entire family. You are invited to join in the fun and learn more about community efforts to curb crime and keep our neighborhoods safe.
NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to: (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs; (3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) send a message to criminals letting them know that the neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Police Chief James Mills notes that community partnership is the key to keeping crime rates low in Benbrook, “We are very fortunate to have the support and participation of our residents and business owners. By partnering with the community, Benbrook sends the message that we stand together against crime.”
