CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi Police Department will be hosting its annual National Night Out activity this week.

Melissa Castro of the CCPD joined KRIS 6 Sunrise via zoom to talk about this year's event which will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday.

Activities will be a little different this year because of the pandemic. CCPD does not recommend block parties or social gatherings as in previous years.

Instead, the department has these recommendations:

  • Decorating Your Front Yard: Display National Night Out or Crime Prevention posters and signs to show support of police and promoting crime prevention
  • “Blue Lights” National Night Out: Have a blue light on (porch light or other light in your front yard) as a symbol of solidarity against crime and to show support for Corpus Christi Police Department and Law Enforcement.

Be sure to join them to help keep your neighborhood safe.
