OKLAHOMA CITY – U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Downing will join law enforcement, community leaders, and residents on Tuesday, August 6, at the Warren Theater parking lot in Moore from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. to celebrate National Night Out.

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 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 neighbors in Moore and cities and towns across the Western District of Oklahoma to support safer streets and drive out crime," said U.S. Attorney Downing.

National Night Out organizers are expecting over 16,000 communities and 38 million people nationwide to take part in community events on Tuesday.  Many, including the event in Moore, feature local vendors and demonstrations by local ambulance, fire, and police teams.

The City of Norman will also hold various neighborhood events on Tuesday in addition to its community-wide National Night Out event at the Norman Police Department, 201 West Gray Street, from 5:30 to 8:30.
