The evening is dedicated to promoting police and community partnerships, according to the National Night Out website. Both cities' websites said citizens, stakeholders, and representatives from police and fire departments will meet at neighborhood block parties throughout the area in an effort to make communities safer.

Missouri city encourages members of the community to check with neighborhood associations and watch groups for events happening in their area. The official start time for National Night Out in Sugar Land and Missouri City is 6 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., respectively, but times may vary depending on the neighborhood.

Community leaders in Sugar Land can request a patrol officer, motorcycle officers or a fire truck to visit their event through the city of Sugar Land website.

Additionally, Missouri City hosted a Pre-National Night Out Kick-Off event Sept. 28 at the Missouri City Police Mini-Station at 2440 Texas Parkway, where residents met with the police and fire departments, browsed public safety equipment and received crime-prevention materials.

Sugar Land and Missouri City will join more than 89,000 communities across all 50 states, U.S. territories, military bases and Canadian cities in participating in National Night Out activities, according to the city of Sugar Land website. While National Night Out is celebrated nationwide on the first Tuesday of August, Texas opts to observe the day on the first Tuesday of October.
