Coppell National Night Out Ranked First in Texas

The City of Coppell celebrated the 35th Anniversary of National Night Out on Tuesday October 6, 2018 with more than 85 block parties throughout the city. This unique nationwide program is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit, and establish better police-community partnerships. The Coppell Police Department coordinated more than 25 teams of Officers, the Mayor and City Council, the City Manager and staff, the Fire Department and Volunteers to visit the block parties. The block captains did an outstanding job this year, providing food trucks, bounce houses, snow cones and popcorn, catered and grilled food, and fun activities for children.

After the big night, the Coppell Police Department sent a Post Project Report to the National Association of Town Watch for judging. This year, Coppell received 1st place in the State of Texas and 5th in the nation for Category 4, population 15,000-49,999. This is the 12th year in a row that Coppell has received 1st in Texas. The Coppell Police Department wants to thank all of the great Coppell citizens that participated, the various departments of the City of Coppell, and all the wonderful volunteers that assisted with this year's National Night Out!
