NIAGARA FALLS, NY – U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. will join law enforcement, community leaders and residents TONIGHT Tuesday, August 6th at the Annual Crime Night Out sponsored by the Niagara Falls Block Club Council to celebrate the 36th annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event. The event will be held at St Paul's Lutheran Church at the corner of 18th and Cleveland in Niagara Falls.

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 36 years, 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.  I am proud to stand with my colleagues and my neighbors to support safer streets and work together to drive out crime,” said U.S. Attorney Kennedy.

In addition, USAO Law Enforcement Coordinator Samuel L. Palmiere will be taking part in National Night Out activities in the Town of Tonawanda.

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