G.A.I.N. or Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods is a statewide event that is the result of a joint effort between government and community driven organizations to improve local participation and partnerships among neighborhoods, police, fire and businesses to reduce crime and increase public safety awareness. This annual event is held in October, in conjunction with National Crime Prevention month.
This year, on October 17th, the City of Glendale invites neighborhoods, businesses, civic groups and local officials to join us for the G.A.I.N. Kickoff event at one central location, designed to show support, create new/positive relationships in the community and motivate leaders to go out and promote cooperative crime prevention efforts. The Glendale Police Department views this day as the perfect opportunity to show their appreciation for those in the community that support our efforts in the day to day fight against crime. This free event will have food, raffles, vendor booths, fun activities for kids and music.
In the days following the Kickoff, we encourage the community to go back to their neighborhoods and host a block party/cookout/neighborhood walk for G.A.I.N. to share and promote safety and awareness of community issues, increase neighborhood communication and send the message to criminals that they are organized and fighting back!
Last year was a great success…let’s make this one even greater!
