U.S. Attorney’s Office Taking Part in National Night Out

CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA – Tuesday, August 2, 2016, attorneys from the United States Attorney’s Office will join members of law enforcement and the community as part of the 33rd annual National Night Out campaign. 

National Night Out is designed to enhance police-community relations, heighten crime prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts, and strengthen neighborhood spirit.  National Night Out organizers are expecting more than 16,000 communities and 38 million people to take part in community events.

“National Night Out is a great way for all neighbors to join with both law enforcement and community partners to demonstrate that crime does not rule the night and that criminals have no safe haven when the sun goes down,” said United States Attorney Kevin W. Techau. “The ‘Night Out’ is also a great way to acknowledge the accomplishments of our neighborhood organizations that keep communities safe, and to thank our law enforcement community for putting their lives on the line for us every day.”

Assistant United States Attorneys will be joining community leaders and law enforcement in Sioux City, Cedar Rapids, Marion, Waterloo and Dubuque.
