Detroit Police Department’s National Night Out

Posted: 07/29/16

On Tuesday, August 2, the Detroit Police Department’s (DPD) Third Precinct will join millions of other public safety administrations, community and faith based organizations to make communities across the nation safer with the 33rd Annual National Night Out.

Since its inception, this national program has engaged over 38 million residents, law enforcement officers and community leaders to gain a better understanding of each other resulting in the creation of  stronger relationships. National Night Out was established in 1984 with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), U.S. Department of Justice. The program is administered by the National Association of Town Watch, a nationwide organization dedicated to the development, maintenance, and protection of community-based, law enforcement affiliated crime prevention activities. National Night Out was developed as a crime prevention program that emphasizes building a partnership between the police and the community. Community involvement in crime prevention is generated through a multitude of local events, such as block parties, cookouts, parades, contests, youth activities, and seminars.

Under the leadership of Commander Giaquinto,  the 2016 National Night Out for Detroit will rally residents for an evening full of festivities. Join them for games, music and family fun on Tuesday, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. This year’s event will take place at their new location, 2875 W. Grand Blvd., Detroit, MI 48202, just three blocks west of the their former West Grand Boulevard office. For more information please call (313) 596-5110.
