The White Settlement Police Department received a huge award from the National Association of Town Watch for our participation and activities during National Night Out on October 4, 2022. Due to the high level of attendance, quality of activities and partnerships, and incorporation of many law enforcement agencies, social service organizations, and vendors, the department was awarded this recognition. "This was truly an honor to accept this award on behalf of our community and public safety team," said Chief of Police Christopher Cook. "We look forward to an even bigger event in 2023 as we strategize on ways to maximize attendance and increase the level of partnership with our residents."
In January 2023, Chief Cook and members of the executive leadership team presented the award to the City Council to showcase the highlights from the event. This is the first-ever award at the national level received by the department for National Night Out.
