United States Attorney’s Office to Attend Community Events During National Night Out

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Rhode Island

PROVIDENCE - The U.S. Attorney’s Office will join community organizers, neighbors, and law enforcement partners to participate in National Night Out events on August 1, 2023. The U.S. Attorney’s Office will join Project Safe Neighborhoods partners at events in Providence, Pawtucket, Warwick, Central Falls, and Woonsocket.

“This program is an example of the ways that law enforcement partners with our communities to build relationships, support neighborhoods, and reaffirm our shared commitment of working together to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our cities and towns,” said U.S. Attorney Cunha.  “This office is proud to support our communities and our law enforcement colleagues as part of this great event.”

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes partnerships and camaraderie between law enforcement and the communities they serve to make our neighborhoods safer places to live. Millions take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities throughout the country on the first Tuesday of August in most areas of the country.            

National Night Out was established in 1984 with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance of the U.S. Department of Justice. The program is administered by the National Association of Town Watch, a nationwide non-profit organization.

Coordinated by local law enforcement and trained volunteers, National Night Out provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Neighborhoods host block parties, cookouts, festivals, parades, safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, and more. National Night Out sends a message that neighbors are united and working together to keep their communities and each other safe.
