U.S. Attorney’s Office to Take Part in Spokane’s National Night Out Against Crime

Spokane – Joseph H. Harrington, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, announced that on Tuesday, August 7th, members from his office will participate in community events held as part of Spokane’s National Night Out Against Crime.

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. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring law enforcement and the community together under positive circumstances.

Joseph H. Harrington said, “National Night Out Against Crime is an outstanding opportunity for neighbors to gather with their law enforcement and community partners. When such groups gather they demonstrate that battling crime in our communities is truly a collective responsibility. The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Washington looks forward to joining others on Tuesday to help continue to spread the important message that we are all in this together.”
