The Jacksboro Police Department will once again be hosting the National Night Out, tonight, at the Jacksboro Middle School. Residents of Jacksboro and Jack County are invited to enjoy the event, beginning at 6 pm. Jack County Sheriff Office, Jack County RVFD, Jacksboro Fire Department and other emergency response personnel will join together to serve food, host games and other entertainment. The event is free and open to all.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community
partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
The National Night Out event celebrates its 33rd anniversary, nationally, this year. Police Chief Terry McDaniel will be overseeing the event for his 5th time. Always looking for ways to unite the department with the residents of the city, McDaniel knows the challenges that officers are faced with. Hosting events such as NNO and the Coffee With a Cop program brings positive results in a turbulent world, something most will agree we need to see more of.
National Night Out:
- Where: Jacksboro Middle School (812 W Belknap, Jacksboro)
- When: 6pm to 9pm
- What: Food, games, entertainment
- Cost: FREE!
