National Night Out
Each October neighborhoods throughout Hutto join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the National Night Out (NNO) crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by the Hutto Police Department, will involve over 16 thousand communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 38 million people are expected to participate in America's Night Out Against Crime.
- Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
- Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs
- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
- Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized
Although NNO is a one day/night of the year event, neighbors repeatedly report that the neighbors they meet that day help to build stronger neighborhoods throughout the year. The relationships enable them to stay connected to one another, and help to encourage dialogue between each other so if they see or hear activities, they inform each other.
Citizens of Hutto play a vital role in assisting the Hutto Police Department through joint crime, drug and violence prevention efforts in the City of Hutto. It is essential that all citizens be aware of the importance of crime prevention programs and the impact their participation can have on reducing crime, drugs and violence in Hutto.
This year's event will be a city-wide celebration in Hutto! Gates open at 4:30 p.m. at Brushy Creek Amphitheater. Don't miss the food trucks, live music, HOA booths, public safety displays, and FIREWORKS at 8:00 p.m.!
