Acting U.S. Attorney Saima Mohsin To Take Part In National Night Out

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

Detroit, MI – Acting U.S. Attorney Saima Mohsin will join law enforcement, community leaders and residents on Tuesday, August 3rd at several locations throughout Detroit to celebrate the National Night Out crime and drug prevention events.

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.

“Keeping our communities safe is a top Justice Department priority, as it is for state, local and Tribal police departments across the country,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “Law enforcement is most effective when it has the trust and support of the communities it serves. That is why events like National Night Out are so important and effective; they help to bridge the gap between neighbors and their police departments in a positive and informal setting.”

“National Night Out is a time for law enforcement, community leaders and residents to join together in the fight against crime in our communities. These types of events help to strengthen our resolve to root out crime and build stronger and safer communities,” said Acting US Attorney Mohsin. “I’m proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our stakeholders to support safer streets.”

DPD Chief White stated, "National Night Out provides another opportunity to connect with our community and to build relationships based on trust and respect. It also illustrates our commitment to reduce crime and improve the quality of life for our residents through community policing. We look forward to joining millions across America including law enforcement members to mark this momentous event. We are #OneDetroit!”

Mrs. Mohsin will appear at Detroit Police precincts all throughout the city.
