Cruising with a Claus
The Anna Texas Police Department and Anna Fire Department Cruising with a Claus Holiday Toy Drive 2022 is officially underway Nov. 15 - Dec. 3, 2022.
The toy drive benefits Anna elementary students this holiday season. Your help is crucial to make this toy drive successful. Working together, we can be certain this holiday season will bring great cheer to those in need. Your donations would be greatly appreciated.
Please drop off new, unwrapped toys and jackets at the Anna Police Department located within the Anna Municipal Complex, 120 W. 7th St., Anna TX by December 5, or at the Anna Tree Lighting event on Dec. 3.
A collection box for gift card donations will also be available so officers can purchase any remaining items for the children.
Other drop off locations include Texas Bank and Walmart. Boxes will be added to the elementary schools soon as well.
National Night Out
Each October, join neighbors throughout Anna as we celebrate National Night Out with block parties and community gatherings. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community.
The City of Anna participates in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Nationwide Drug Take-Back event twice per year. At this event, participants can safely dispose of all accumulated expired, unwanted and unused prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous. You do not have to be a neighbor of Anna to participate. Next event TBA.
Coffee with Cops
We invite neighbors to join us for casual conversations over a cup of coffee.
We believe Coffee with the Cops provides a unique opportunity for our community members to ask us questions and learn more about how we operate, our goals and also share their feedback with us. All community members are invited to attend.
