MISSION – Mission Police Department, together with Mission Crime Stoppers, will host their 17th Annual National Night Out (NNO) with a big block party at 6:30 p.m. August 7, at Leo Peña Placita Park, across from H-E-B on South Conway.
Mission Police Chief Martin Garza said this is an opportunity for the community to come together and take a stand together against crime. The event also gives the community an opportunity to meet their local law enforcement and officials, said Garza.
According to NNO’s website, the event is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
