The Corpus Christi Police Department is preparing for their annual National Night out, an event that brings out the community to support local law enforcement.

CCPD is stressing the importance of building a trusting relationship between the community and local law enforcement and how events like National Night out are helping to strengthen that bond.

The event, held across the country every year, brings together the police department and community to help reduce crime in the area. Neighbors are encouraged to meet to discuss ways to look out for one another and precautions they can take to make their neighborhoods safer.

The events are free and open to the public. You can find an event near you at any of the locations listed below:

  • Kleber County Sheriff's Office: 1600 N.14th Street
  • Bee County Courthouse
  • Aransas Pass Municipal Pool: 400 E. Johnson Street
