****** MEDIA ADVISORY ******
WASHINGTON – Tomorrow, Attorney General Merrick B. Garland, Deputy Attorney General Lisa O. Monaco, Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta, and Justice Department officials will participate in National Night Out (NNO) events across the country as part of a Department-wide effort to bring attention to events that build stronger communities. The Attorney General will attend events in the Philadelphia-area, the Deputy Attorney General will attend events in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Associate Attorney General will attend events in Washington, D.C.
NNO is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. In most areas of the country, the program culminates annually on the first Tuesday of August.
Established in 1984 from a Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) grant, the goal of NNO is to build relationships with and between communities and law enforcement. NNO enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community.
