On Tuesday, October 7, 2014 from 6 to 9 p.m., communities throughout the Greater Houston area will participate in National Night Out (NNO), a crime prevention event that enables citizens and citizen groups to band together in a unified fight against crime and drugs.
The Houston/Harris County National Night Out effort has consistently shown its strength, placing amongst the top cities from across the nation in participation. In the past, more than 640 National Night Out events were identified throughout the Houston/Harris County area. Although most cities throughout the United States participate in NNO during the month of August, in 2008 Texas moved the date to October so that citizens will be able to enjoy the night with more neighbors and less heat.
The Houston Association of REALTORS® is encouraging all citizens to take advantage of this opportunity to get out (leaving your lights on) and meet your neighbors. Our strength is in our unity. Our strength sends a clear message to the criminals that we will not tolerate crime in our neighborhood, community, and city.
