BRANSON, Mo – The Branson Police Department is preparing for Branson’s annual National Night Out (NNO), an annual community-building event designed to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, which will be held Tuesday, October 4, 2022, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Branson Police Chief, Jeff Matthews, encourages everyone to participate by organizing a neighborhood get together, attending one that has already been organized, or by turning on your porch lights and going out to meet or greet neighbors. You can register a neighborhood party in your neighborhood by filling out a form in the National Night Out section of our website, www.BransonMo.Gov/Police under the Special Programs section.
“National Night Out is an excellent opportunity for neighbors to rekindle relationships, discover new ones, and work toward strengthening community and neighborhood livability. Our annual National Night Out has become a big part of our community and ultimately leads to safer neighborhoods,” said Chief Matthews.
All departments in the City of Branson including the Police Department, Fire Department, Public Works, Utilities, Parks and Recreation and Administration will be out on October 4 to each neighborhood block party to meet with residents and to explain how they can utilize City resources.
NNO is a national event that is usually held the first Tuesday of August, however, some communities, including Branson, choose to participate in October due to heat-related concerns.
