This year was the third annual National Night Out for Brownwood and the police department was happy to see more people participate this year. The night out gives police officers, EMS, and first responders a chance to meet the citizens they serve and protect. And it allows the citizens a chance to voice their opinions, concerns, and questions to the officers. Not only does this night benefit the police and first responders but also the community. It allows neighbors to interact and meet each other or get together with friends. And knowing your neighbors can help protect the community. The officers encouraged the people to contact them if they see suspicious activity. This years' theme was car burglaries and officers spoke to people on how to make them more aware.
