Tyler Now Doing "Texans Against Crime" Rather Than "National Night Out"

Tyler police want you to know National Night Out is now Texans Against Crime.  The department opted for the alternative so the event would be held on a cooler night in October, rather than in August. Texans Against Crime will be very similar to National Night Out with dozens of block parties held in the Tyler area.

"We want to people to come out and get to know their neighbors. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. They can simply get out and meet their neighbors that night, and I encourage everybody in the city of Tyler to get out and form some communication bonds and get to know who is in their area," said Officer James McCraw, Community Resource Officer with the Tyler Police Department.

Texans Against Crime will be Tuesday, October 9 from 6 pm to 10 pm. You have by next Friday to register your block party online. You can do so on right here onour website. Just click on the "Know More On 7" link to the left and then click on "Texans Against Crime."
