Louisville, KY – U. S. Attorney Michael A. Bennett announced that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Kentucky will join community organizers, neighbors, and law enforcement partners to participate in National Night Out events on August 1, 2023. During this year’s National Night Out, community events will be held across the Commonwealth, including five neighborhood events hosted by the Louisville Metro Police Department. The U.S. Attorney’s Office will attend LMPD’s Eighth Division festivities at Walker Warren Park in the Douglas Hills neighborhood, along with LMPD, ATF, FBI, DEA, and other local partners.
“We are excited to participate in National Night Out this year, as this is a great opportunity for fellowship with our local law enforcement partners and the communities we serve,” said U.S. Attorney Bennett.
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.
