In Texas, National Night Out is held on the first Tuesday of October.  This event is the perfect opportunity for you to meet your neighbors by hosting a block party or community get-together. Invite everyone to bring a covered dish, host a BBQ, play games, exchange business cards, and learn about how they can help reduce crime in the neighborhood. National Night Out is also the perfect time to become familiar with your local LEPD officers. Our team will be driving by as many parties as we can get to during the evening to hand out cool swag. Make NNO your neighborhood's event of the season! Click on the link to apply for an NNO Block Party. Block Party Applications must be submitted no later than Sept. 18 at 5 p.m. The signature page must be completed as required by the guidelines. The regular fee of $50 is waived for all NNO Block Parties.

To obtain more information about National Night Out, please contact our Community Services Division or at 972-377-1885.

Bicycle Rodeos

Bicycle rodeos are about bicycle safety combined with a driving course for bicycle riders. 

Classes are generally structured for persons 6 to 14 years of age. This age range is targeted because they are usually just learning to ride a bicycle without supervision and are the ones most likely to not know, or elect to ignore, safety rules.

At least one parent or adult guardian must accompany children attending this course. 

Contact the Community Services Division at Community Services Division or at 972-377-1885 with any questions.

The Way Home Program

The Little Elm Police Department has developed The Way Home Program for mentally impaired and other at-risk or vulnerable individuals to get them the help and ongoing assistance they need. A vulnerable person is an individual who could be in need of community care services by reason of mental illness, developmental disability/delay, other disability, age, illness, or emotional disturbance and who is or may be unable to take care of or protect themselves against significant harm or exploitation.

Our database stores information should an urgent matter arise that involves an individual. If there is anyone in your life that you would like included in this database, please take a moment to register them. Officers will use the information to assist in locating a lost citizen or any other urgent situation.

The Way Home Program form can be completed electronically online or in person at the Little Elm Police Department (88 W. Eldorado Pkwy., Little Elm, TX 75068). A recent photo of the individual is required.

Contact the Community Services Division or at 972-377-1885 with any questions.
