This year National Night Out will take place on Tuesday, October 2 in both Midland and Odessa.
NNO promotes police-community partnerships and a great opportunity for the community to meet each other.
Most block parties will be between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., but each party time will be to the needs of each neighborhood.
The Midland Police Department, Odessa PD, and Odessa Fire and Rescue will stop by the hosted events throughout the community to get to know them better.
The goal is to raise awareness on crime and prevention; generate support and participation in anti-crime partnerships, and to fight back against crime.
The deadline for Midland is Tuesday, Sept. 25 and the Odessa deadline is Friday, Sept. 28.
