U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

Members of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio will join law enforcement, community leaders and residents on Tuesday, August 6th at events in Cleveland, Toledo, Akron, Youngstown and elsewhere to celebrate the 36th annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event.

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 decades, 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,” U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman said. “I am proud to stand with my colleagues and my neighbors to support safer streets and work together to drive out crime.”

National Night Out organizers are expecting over 16,000 communities and 38 million people nationwide to take part in community events on Tuesday.
