2020 NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

October 2, 2020

El Paso, TX­ – National Night Out is celebrated annually on the first Tuesday in August, in 2020, due to the pandemic National Night Out won’t be like past years. We hope that you join us in keeping the National Night Out spirit alive and growing by celebrating on Tuesday, October 6, 2020.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. Together, we are making that happen.

National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

The Sheriff’s Office in partnership with National Night Out recommend the following safe alternatives to celebrate “America’s Night Out against Crime!”

· Turn on a blue porch light instead of gathering or walks, the blue light unites the community and law enforcement while being social- distance responsible.

· Decorate your front yard with crime prevention signs and posters.

· On Tuesday, October 6th, share the message of National Night Out with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, or anyone you meet.

· Stop and greet a law enforcement officer in your neighborhood.

The Sheriff’s Office would also like to remind the public to continue to observe and practice CDC guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19.

· Maintain social distance (6ft or more from others).

· Wear your face mask.

· Don’t touch your face.

· Wash and/or sanitize your hands often.

On Monday, October 5, 2020, El Paso County Judge and Commissioners Court will sign a resolution recognizing Tuesday, October 6, 2020, as; National Night Out for the County of El Paso, Texas.”

The 2021 National Night Out celebration is tentatively scheduled for August 3, 2021, at Sheriff’s Office Headquarters.
