National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. 

Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas and select areas celebrate on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much more.


Planning for 2021 National Night Out has already begun!!! We will post additional information as soon as available.

If you wish to be a sponsor or provide donations for the 2021 National Night Out,

please contact Sgt. Wilson at 325-573-0261.

It is our hope that this information will not be needed, but in the event a child is missing, they will provide all necessary information for law enforcement to quickly attempt to locate your child. This is a voluntary program and kits can be picked up at the Snyder Police Department or at our Community Events!

Note: Information from these booklets ARE NOT kept by the Snyder Police Department. They are sent home with the parent or guardian to complete and retain.

Vacation Watch

The Snyder Police Department's Vacation Watch Program is designed to provide peace of mind to our residents while they are away from home for extended periods of time, whether for vacation, illness, work-related travel, or other circumstances. The Snyder Police Department will make periodic checks on your residence while it is vacant. Information you provide allows us to contact you or your designated key holder in the event that the residence may need attention.

The Vacation Watch Program provides an overall increase in police presence around your home during your time away. Due to call volume and unforeseen circumstances we cannot guarantee the safety of your home or personal property, but the Snyder Police Department will schedule extra patrols around your home during your time away as often as available.


This program is a public service to help safeguard citizens' property and allow for a rapid response and owner notification in the event of a problem.
