National Night Out is designed to: 

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support for and participation in, local anti-crime programs
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

The purpose of National Night Out is to build strong partnerships between the police and communities and to promote crime awareness programs such as Neighborhood Community Watch groups. According to NATW, last year's event was the largest ever, involving 38 million people in 16,000 communities from all 50 states, US territories, and military bases worldwide. 


Neighborhoods throughout the community are encouraged to lock their doors, turn on their porch lights, gather with their neighbors to show unity against criminal activity and join City Council Members, other city officials, and public safety personnel. Many neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, swimming parties, cookouts, and various other activities.

Project Lifesaver is a rapid response program that locates people who wander away from their caregivers due to brain disorders like Alzheimer's Disease, Autism, Down Syndrome, and dementia. 

How it works: 

Clients enrolled in the program wear a bracelet that contains a battery-operated transmitter which emits a tracking signal. If the client wanders away, the caregiver would notify NBPD and a search team would be deployed. That search includes the use of a mobile receiver that can pick up the signal from the client's transmitter.

Application Requirements: 

  • Must live in the New Braunfels city limits.
  • Must have a clinically diagnosed brain disorder.
  • Must have a 24/7 caregiver.
  • Must be able to wear the bracelet at all times.

Please remember that there are a limited number of bracelets available. Those who qualify will be placed on a waiting list until additional bracelets become available. Or you can purchase a bracelet at your own cost and then register that device with NBPD.

The program is free but is limited to the number of transmitters available.  Citizens can also purchase their transmitters directly from Project Lifesaver and then register those devices with NBPD. The transmitters provided by NBPD are the property of the Police Department and must be returned. There will be a $300 charge for transmitters that are lost, damaged, or not returned.
