Lockney Police to host National Night Out October 4

The following release was submitted by the Lockney Police Department

LOCKNEY – Neighborhoods throughout Lockney are invited to join over 38 million neighbors across 16 thousand communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide.

National Night Out is co-sponsored locally by Lockney Police Department.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Together, we are making that happen.

From time to time, neighbors throughout Lockney and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on their front porch lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement.

Along with the traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, most communities celebrate National Night Out by hosting block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and more.

National Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for our nation to stand together and promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement. When law enforcement and the community work closely together, some amazing things can happen.”

Lockney Police Department will be hosting a movie night with the showing of the movie Courageous. There will also be vendors and fun events for all ages. Other Law Enforcement agencies such as Texas Department of Public Safety and Game Wardens will be present.

We encourage everyone to come engage in a fun night with your community law enforcement agencies.
