    America's night out against crime

    Celebrated in Gresham and in thousands of communities around the U.S. National Night Out helps make communities safer by:

    • Strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
    • Sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
    • Raising crime and drug prevention awareness.
    • Supporting local anti-crime programs.
