Calling all Trophy Club Residents: Take a proactive approach to crime prevention in the community by organizing block parties on Tuesday, October 1 for National Night Out (NNO).

National Night Out is an event that brings neighbors together to get to know one another, share information and swap ideas about how to prevent crimes from happening in the community. Neighborhoods can plan a block party for the street and Trophy Club police and fire personnel will come to your block party to answer questions, provide information and just mingle with residents. National Night Out is a social event geared towards taking a stand against crime; so cook out on the grill, set up some lawn chairs and gather as a neighborhood to let the bad guys know you are watching!

When: Tuesday, October 1, 2013
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Where: Neighborhoods Throughout Trophy Club

Please contact Officer Scott Voigt at 682-831-4651 or svoigt@trophyclub.org to let us know where and what time your party is scheduled and we will make sure to stop by for a visit.

Set Up a Neighborhood Watch Program

Setting up a neighborhood watch is simple and does not require a huge amount of effort or time; the program can be as basic or robust as you like. To start a neighborhood watch program, one resident needs to serve as a temporary block captain to determine how much support can be generated in the neighborhood for such a program.  Participation from at least one-third of the homes in the neighborhood is needed for starting a neighborhood watch program. 

Please contact Officer Scott Voigt at 682-831-4651 or svoigt@trophyclub.org to set up a time for the initial meeting. This meeting will kick off the neighborhood watch and familiarize everyone with the benefits of a neighborhood watch program. The minimum requirements are at least two meetings a year, including National Night Out; however, you are by no means limited to just two meetings.  More meetings and additional training are always available.

If you have questions about setting up a neighborhood watch program, please contact Officer Voigt.
