Map: San Antonio National Night Out
National Night Out (NNO) promotes involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. NOWCastSA aims to enrich San Antonio’s NNO activities by engaging online audiences, raising awareness of events, and helping people and organizations to tell their own stories.
Find events in your neighborhood with this interactive National Night Out map, created by NOWCastSA so you can share and showcase this popular community gathering. NOWCastSA staff will add events registered with the San Antonio Police Department to the map as soon as information becomes available so you can add your comments and updates. You can also send us your event photos, videos or stories via email to email@example.com, or by sending a tweet on Twitter with the hashtag #NNOSATX.
San Antonio has always shown tremendous enthusiasm for the crime and drug prevention event that is held in August in the rest of the U.S. and on Oct. 1 across Texas.
Neighborhood associations, apartment complexes and businesses compete each year for San Antonio Police Department National Night Out awards by hosting block parties, barbecues, potlucks, parades and bicycle rides. The events are scheduled to last from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
To further strengthen community-police partnerships, SAPD helps the Night Out organizers by sending mascots and police officers to neighborhood events.
The project is free and open to the entire community.
National Night Out was introduced by the National Association of Town Watch in 1983 as a way of encouraging creation of Neighborhood Watch groups.
