(Sept. 25, 2013) -- The UTSA Police Department will host National Night Out, an event to increase awareness of crime prevention programs, from 6 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 1 at the University Center Paseo on the UTSA Main Campus. The event is free and open to the public and will include snacks, beverages, information tables and activities. A live band and a kids' corner also are part of the event.

Hosted by the UTSA Police Department, UTSA Student Activities and Target stores, in collaboration with many other university departments, this marks the fourth annual event at UTSA. Sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, National Night Out is an annual neighborhood crime and drug prevention event involving citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, neighborhood organizations and local officials from more than 15,000 communities from all 50 states.

In addition to increasing awareness of crime prevention programs, the event strives to strengthen neighborhood pride and community-police partnerships, while sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods and communities are organized, working with police and fighting back against crime. For the UTSA community, Roadrunners can learn what resources and programs are available to support a safe and positive college experience.

"This is a night for the UTSA community to stand together and promote awareness, safety and campus unity," said UTSA Police Chief Steve Barrera. "UTSA is an example of a community that works together in combating crime and maintaining a quality of life conducive to achieving academic success and a safer campus."

This year's UTSA campus sponsors and partners include Counseling Services; Office of Emergency Management; Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management; Student Activities; University Center Program Council, UTSA Bookstores, and Housing and Residence Life.
