PITTSBURGH – U.S. Attorney Scott W. Brady and U.S. Attorney’s Office employees will join law enforcement, community leaders and residents on Tuesday, August 6th at locations across western Pennsylvania from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 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.

U.S. Attorney Brady will visit community events in Pittsburgh’s Homewood, Hill District, Hazelwood and North Side neighborhoods. Office staff will attend events in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler and Erie Counties.

"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 Brady.

According to George C. Spencer, Sr., President of the Greater Pittsburgh Area chapter of MAD DADS, "Events like National Night Out enhance MAD DADS’ efforts to organize street patrols and implement community-based programs that help maintain safer neighborhoods and communities."

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