Copperas Cove Police Department The Copperas Cove Police Depart-ment has participated in National Night Out for the past sixteen years. This year’s Kick Off Party has been scheduled for Saturday, September 28th, 2013 from 6pm to 8pm. The Copperas Cove Police Department will be hosting the event, being held in Downtown Copperas Cove, at Av-enue E and South Main Street. Hot-dogs, chips, cookies, popcorn, soft drinks and snow-cones will be served. Numerous children and adult activi-ties will be available as well as door prizes given away throughout the eve-ning. Some of the events are at no charge and others are priced at only .25 cents each. McGruff the Crime Dog, Sparky the Fire Dog, Recycle Michael, and H-E-Buddy will all also be at the party for the 4th annual “Dance Off”. National Night Out is designed to (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs; (3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnership; and (4) send a message to the criminals let-ting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. For the 16th consecutive year we are asking residents in neighborhoods to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Suggestions for out-door functions include, but are not limited to: block parties, cookouts, flashlight walks, contests, youth activi-ties and anti-crime and drug rallies. National Night Out has proved to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neigh-borhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer nation. Plus, the benefits our com-munity will derive from National Night Out will most certainly extend well beyond the one night. Page 6 City of Copperas Cove 2013 Annual Report
