National Night Out in downtown Victoria

VICTORIA, Texas – The Victoria Police Department’s Community Engagement Unit hosted residents Saturday to encourage participation in this year’s National Night Out event.

It’s an evening of block parties hosted throughout the nation to strengthen police-community relations and improve neighborhood fellowship.

National Night Out this year is set for Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2021. Residents who would like to a host block party and receive a visit from first responders should contact the Community Engagement Unit at 361-485-3808 or PoliceCEU@victoriatx.gov.

“These parties are a great way for residents to meet their neighbors and the officers who serve them,” said Community Engagement Officer John Turner. “If you’ve hosted a party before, we’d love to have you back, and if this is your first year to participate, we can help you to host a successful event.”
