SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Local neighborhoods are invited to join the Shreveport Police Department in celebrating unity against crime in our area with an early kickoff party.

But first, the city wants you to help choose this year’s National Night Out theme.

The theme choices are:

  • A Nite to Unite,
  • Better Together,
  • Rock the Block, and,
  • Unity in the Community.

The winner will be announced during the National Night Out kickoff party that the Police Department’s Community Oriented Policing Bureau (COPB) will host from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, July 28 at A.B. Palmer Community Center, 547 E. 79th St.

There will be free food, drinks, live music, face painting, games and more.

The public will be invited to come out and register to host a block party Oct. 4. Those who register will be put into a drawing for a chance to have their block party catered compliments of Silver Star Restaurant.

This event is meant to encourage neighbors to get to know each other and their local law enforcement officials under positive circumstances to help build stronger relations. The COPB’s intention is to send a clear message that neighbors are organizing and fighting back against crime in our area.

COPB is partnering with the City of Shreveport, Community Renewal International, and Crime Stoppers for the Shreveport National Night Out activities.
