City Gearing up for National Night Out

NNO 2018

The City of Branson is preparing for Branson’s annual National Night Out (NNO) that will be held Tuesday, October 2, 2018, from 5 to 8 pm. NNO is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.


Branson Police Chief, Jeff Matthews, is encouraging everyone to participate by organizing a neighborhood get together for Tuesday night, or even just turning on your porch lights and going out to meet your neighbors that night.

 

“What we’ve seen is that National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. It also provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances,” said Chief Matthews.


All departments in the City of Branson including the Police Department, Fire Department, Public Works, Utilities, Parks and Recreation and Administration will be out, traveling to each neighborhood block party to meet with residents and explain how they can utilize City resources. Right now there are about 10 official neighborhoods that have signed up with Branson Police.


The City and several other area organizations have also organized a special NNO celebration for children of families in need. This will be at Plato’s Cave, located at 3524 Keeter Street from 5-8 pm. The Fire Department will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs and there will be fun activities for children like face painting, a clown and a bouncy house.


If you want to make sure Police and other City Departments stop by your neighborhood gathering on Tuesday, make sure they know about it. You can message the Police Department on Facebook or call the station at (417) 334-3300.

 

NNO is a national event, usually held the first Tuesday of August, however, some communities, including Branson, choose to participate in October because of heat concerns.
