The Glendale Police Department believes in the power of prevention and encourages residents, businesses, public and private institutions and faith based organizations, to work in collaboration with the Police Department to help make our community a safer place to live and work.
G.A.I.N. is an annual event designed to heighten crime awareness and generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts, by uniting community members, to help create safer neighborhoods. The event promotes residents coming together, within their neighborhoods, to plan a neighborhood party, share and promote safety and awareness of community issues, and increase neighborhood communication and participation.
October is National Crime Prevention Month and G.A.I.N. is a wonderful opportunity to plan an event in your neighborhood and celebrate the successes of crime prevention through community involvement. 2014 event information has yet to be determined.
*City of Glendale staff, the Mayor and City Council members will only attend parties registered with the Glendale Police Department.*
