City of Midland Gearing Up for National Night Out

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

The City of Midland and law enforcement agencies are gearing up for this year's National Night Out.

For Midland, this year's event will be held on Tuesday, October 6.

They're encouraging neighborhoods to throw a block party to meet your neighbors and local law enforcement officers.

The Midland Police Department says it's a great way to meet new people and keep your neighborhood safe.

"You know a lot of people move in to a neighborhood and never meet their neighbors. And we believe the more eyes you have, we believe in taking care of your neighbors. Like letting your neighbors know you're out of town so that they'll make sure your stuff is protected. It's just helping one another out," said Sgt. Jimmy Young with the Midland Police Department.

If you'd like to sign up to host a block party, you still have time.

The deadline is September 28.

You can mail or fax it in or call the department for more information.
