National Night Out

National Night Out 2020 official Logo in red, white and blue.
National Night Out was founded in 1984 as a means of bringing neighbors together in their communities. Over the years, it has grown in scope bringing citizens and law enforcement agencies closer together.

Typically, the City of Tomball holds National Night Out events at the Historic Depot at 201 S. Elm on the First Tuesday evening in October, which is the date designated for Texas.

This year, due to social distancing guidelines set up to safely navigate through the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Tomball Police Department has come up with a different way to participate in National Night Out.  Historically, families would light their patios up with a blue light in support of Law Enforcement on National Night Out while hosting block parties.

If you would like to share a photo of your porch or patio lit up with a blue light, please tag us on social media (@TomballPD) with the hashtags #TomballNNO #NNO2020 #TomballTogether #TomballUnites.

We are also inviting community members of all ages to participate in coloring contest with one of the pages below. A winner will be selected from each age/grade group, a prize will either be dropped off or mailed on Tuesday, October 6 for National Night Out.

You may print a copy of a coloring page from the link(s) below on white paper or pick up a copy at the Tomball Police Department Lobby.

Submissions are due no later than Monday, October 5, 2020 at 5:00 pm. You may either drop your submission off at a drop box inside the Tomball Police Department Lobby, or via email to in pdf or jpg format.
