Back to School Celebration

The Back to School Celebration is an end-of-summer event serving and supported by the Round Rock community. This event provides school supplies, vision and hearing screening, sports physicals, food, games, and other attractions – all completely free of cost. This event is offered through a partnership between the Round Rock Police Department, the Round Rock Police Foundation, Round Rock Express, Round Rock ISD, and Round Rock ISD Partners in Education Foundation.

 

Coffee with a Cop

Held periodically throughout the year at various cafes and coffee shops, this informal event provides an opportunity for residents to meet and converse with local law enforcement in a casual, low-key environment. Check out our Facebook page to see if we’ve got one coming up.

 

Fill the Cop Car / Hike for Hunger

The Round Rock Police Department collaborates with the U.S. Army to sponsor the annual Hike for Hunger Food Drive benefiting the Round Rock Area Serving Center. Participants hike 2 miles from the U.S. Army Round Rock Recruiting Center to the Round Rock Area Serving Center carrying rucksacks filled with food. The public is encouraged to join the hike alongside the men and women of the Police Department and U.S. Army.

The Round Rock Serving Center serves low-income people and families in crisis situations through a food distribution program. Donations of nonperishable food items are collected during a Fill the Cop Car event at multiple grocery stores throughout the City.

Both events usually occur in October and November.

 

National Night Out

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. Together, we are making that happen.

National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits.

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat is a Halloween-themed community event presented through a partnership between the Round Rock Police Department, Round Rock Operation Blue Santa, and the RRISD Partners in Education Foundation. At this community-wide, family-oriented event, attendees are invited to come in costume and “trunk” or treat as they visit decorated vehicle trunks throughout the parking lot. Activities often include face painting, bounce houses, carnival games, concessions, fall crafts, and treats. Stay tuned for specific event location.
