Those who call Ennis home know that it is more than just a place to visit but a place where one should stay a little longer.
Apparently, the Great North American Eclipse thinks so as well.
The Eclipse will last 4 minutes and 23 seconds in Ennis, longer than in any other city in North America.

This type of total solar Eclipse only recurs every 360-410 years.
The path of this Eclipse will occur on April 8, 2024, at approximately 12:22 pm.

The Ennis Police Department has been preparing for this event for some time now. Our team, along with partners from other surrounding agencies, will combine efforts to make this event safe and fun for all involved.

We want to advise our citizens to expect many out-of-town vehicles, pedestrians, and education traffic. We ask that you show those visiting our great city the Bluebonnet Spirit.
Our hotels, restaurants, stores, and streets will all experience more significant than average volume. Be patient, kind, and helpful to those coming to experience this one in several lifetimes event.

We also want to remind those of us planning on viewing the Eclipse to be prepared with the special glasses or equipment needed to watch without risking injury to your eyes.

In times like these, we are proud to be from such a great community and truly honored to serve as your Police Department.
