Law enforcement officials in Washington County are gearing up for another installment of National Night Out, which will likely take on a much different look this year for those who participate.
The annual effort to get neighbors and first responders to meet one another is set for Tuesday, October 6th from 6 to 8:30 p.m. However, while some neighboring agencies are adopting different methods of observing the event due to COVID-19, Washington County’s celebration of National Night Out will still use the block party format.
This year’s theme will be Hometown Heroes, in honor of all of those who have helped the residents of Washington County work through the pandemic. Authorities encourage all who are looking to take part in the event be mindful of social distancing and self-protection as society continues to work through COVID-19.
To register a block party inside Brenham city limits, contact Brenham Police Sergeant Todd Ashorn at 979-337-7382. That information will be shared with the Brenham Fire Department and Washington County EMS.
Washington County residents can register a party outside Brenham city limits by contacting Washington County Sheriff’s Sergeant Justin Bosse at 979-353-7712.
All block party information needs to be received by the evening of Friday, October 2nd.
