U.S. Attorney’s Office to Take Part in 36th Annual National Night Out

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Alaska

Anchorage, Alaska – the U.S. Attorney’s Office will join law enforcement, community leaders and residents on TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2019, at the Mountain View Boys & Girls Club from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM to celebrate the 36th annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event.

This free community event is put on by the Mountain View Boys & Girls Club (315 Price Street, Anchorage, AK 99508) in partnership with the Anchorage Police Department.  The Anchorage community will be welcomed for a night of free food, games, prizes, a petting zoo, music entertainment, and much more.

National Night Out is a community-building and crime prevention campaign that promotes collaborative law enforcement-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Thousands of communities nationwide will participate in neighborhood block parties, festivals, cookouts, safety demonstrations, seminars, and activities that heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and generate support for and participation in local anticrime efforts. Events such as these help to strengthen neighborhood spirit, police-community partnerships, and demonstrate a shared commitment for strong and safe communities. 

“For 36 years, National Night Out has rallied neighborhood residents, law enforcement and community leaders in the common goal of strengthening relationships to help prevent and deter crime in our local community.  I am proud to stand with my colleagues and my neighbors to support safer streets and work together to drive out crime,” said U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder.

Last year, over 1,500 people showed up in the rain at Anchorage’s National Night Out event.  National Night Out organizers are expecting over 16,000 communities and 38 million people nationwide to take part in community events on Tuesday.
