National Night Out in Boerne
About National Night Out
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Millions of neighbors participate in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories, and military bases worldwide. Most communities observe National Night Out on the first Tuesday in August, but communities in Texas, including Boerne, observe the event on the first Tuesday in October.
National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. It provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts, and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits, and much, much more.

2021 National Night Out
In 2021, Boerne National Night Out was our biggest event since 2015. 2021 was our seventh year participating and applying for the awards program. Our National Night Out 2021 activities have again been recognized by the National Association of Town Watch, Inc.
We placed 19th in 2021 and we climbed into the Top 20 for the first time ever amongst peer cities nationwide (population 15,000-50,000) with 135 cities in our group. Thank you to all the community members, event planners, and first responders; without your help, this is not possible. We hope to see everyone again next year!
