Neighbors will come together with police officers for a good reason on Oct. 5, as the 37th annual National Night Out takes place in the city of Cibolo and throughout Texas.

The night gives residents a chance to talk with those who protect and serve at neighborhood gatherings.


Cibolo Police Chief Bryan Hugghins said at the Sept. 28 city council meeting with safety in mind over COVID-19 concerns, he felt it “was imperative we go out and foster those community partnerships” that are important to the department and its residents.

The event draws more than 37 million people from over 10,000 communities in North America to discuss crime prevention programs, crime-reduction efforts and gives an opportunity for residents to get to know the officers in their communities.

A proclamation was signed by Mayor Stosh Boyle to honor National Night Out in Cibolo at the Sept. 28 meeting.
