SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - The city of Branson is hosting National Night Out to bring neighborhoods and first responders together to build community.

17 neighborhoods will participate in this year’s National Night Out event in Branson. The goal is to create positive relationships between emergency personnel and residents with a night of fun.

“I’ve noticed out of those bonds and those relationships that we’ve been able to connect with our citizens and we’ve been able to form Crime Prevention and Community watch programs,” said Branson Police Officer Darold Donathan. “So, you know, during National Night Out is just a one-time event. And we’ll do it again next October. But between now and then, we rely on those neighborhoods in those community watch programs to formulate.”

Residents can enjoy block parties, cookouts, games, and safety demonstrations with Branson’s police and fire departments, city staff, and elected officials. Officers say the best way to establish safer communities is to get to know your neighbors.

“National Night Out allows us police officers the opportunity to team up with neighbors, neighborhoods, and the community and share with them ideas, tips suggestions, to keep them safe and reduce crime,” said Donathan.

National Night out will occur in the following neighborhoods from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
