Bee County National Night Out's Mission Statement
Bee County National Night Out is for the general public from all over Bee County. This night has been set aside in order that the citizens of the county could meet their local law enforcement, fire departments, and emergency medical technicians in order that together, we will continue to build community spirit.
History of National Night out in Bee County
National Association of Town Watchers Executive Director Matt Peskin began National Night Out in 1984. He was hoping it would be a way for our local law enforcement agencies to come together with our communities to send a message to criminals that we are fighting back against crime.
National Night out started out with only 400 communities in 23 states participating that year. Today there are 16,124 communities in all fifty states, U. S. territories, Canadian cities, and on military bases worldwide. While most communities hold their events in August because of the heat ours is on the first Tuesday in October.
In 2012 the Bee County Sheriff's Office, the Beeville Police Department and the Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers joined forces for the annual National Night Out to help promote community spirit.
We have grown from a block party to encompass three areas this year. The event has vendors, games, entertainment, food, a mini health fair and Rosie the Clown!
Parents, grandparents, young and old can come bring the kids and not worry about the cost because everything is free. There is useful information about bullying in school and on the computer along with bicycle safety to name a few. We will have officers from both the Sheriff's Office and the Police Department along with their K-9 unit to answer your questions. There will also be staffed ambulances and you will be able to talk with emergency personnel.
This year we are reaching out to include all fire departments in Bee County to come and participate in this worthwhile event.
National Night Out is only two hours long (6:00-8:00 pm). Children can still get home to do work or get to be on time for school the next day.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!!
