A message from the DeSoto Police Department.....
Since 1984, the first Tuesday in August of each year has been designated as a special Community Night Out against crime also known as NATIONAL NIGHT OUT.
National Night Out is celebrated each year in an effort to heighten crime prevention and community awareness; strengthen neighborhood spirit, and Police-Community partnership; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. People are asked to come out of their homes, apartment s, and condos to meet and become acquainted with their neighbors. Neighborhoods, often working through their Neighborhood Watch Groups, are greatly encouraged to plan special activities, such as:
_Block parties, cook-outs and ice cream socials
_Visits from local Police
_Competitive games; and
Your neighborhood group is encouraged to participate in this event. National Night in DeSoto will be celebrated on Tuesday, August
