West Tawakoni to join cities nationwide for


On Tuesday, October 6, neighborhoods throughout West Tawakoni are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “32nd Annual National Night Out” (NNO) crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored by the West Tawakoni Police Department and West Tawakoni Volunteer Fire Department , will involve over 16,540 communities from all 50 states, U. S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 38.1 million people are expected to participate in “America’s Night Out Against Crime”.

National Night Out is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

From 6 to 9 p.m. on October 6, residents in neighborhoods throughout West Tawakoni and across the nation, are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and the police. Many neighborhoods throughout West Tawakoni will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties and cookouts.

National Project Coordinator Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for America to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight to build a safe nation. On NNO, we invite neighborhoods nationwide to join us in Giving Crime & Drugs A Going Away Party.”

So please get involved, involve as many of your neighbors as you can and let’s make National Night Out 2015 the best ever! We must unite because none of us can do this alone.

The West Tawakoni Police Department is scheduled to visit three (3) neighborhoods so far this year:

Hales Retreat - 6:15
Tawakoni Grove - 6:45
Arrowhead - 8:15

West Tawakoni Police Department Notice to Citizens

In recent days we have been experiencing a rash of Vehicle Burglaries. These seem to have started over the weekend of February 7 and February 8 and appear to be on-going. Vehicles in various parts of town have been hit, with perpetrators going through vehicles, scattering contents and taking small items. The items taken have been sunglasses, music cds, one flash drive and other small items.

In most every case, the vehicles have been unlocked and sitting on the owners premises. This is an open invitation to a thief as there is no effort involved in gaining entry.

Please do your best to always ensure that your vehicles are locked when parked, even on your own property. Remember, should you have to contact your insurance carrier, the first question your insurance agent is going to ask is “was the vehicle locked”?

Don’t be a victim, lock and secure your vehicles and your home.

Thank you,
West Tawakoni Police Department
