To show support for the efforts of those helping with the fight against crime, please come out this weekend for G.A.I.N. - Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods.
Arizona's answer to National Night Out, G.A.I.N. is a day to celebrate crime prevention through community involvement. It is also a day the police show their appreciation for those that support efforts to fight against crime day to day in their communities. Events can include specialty police visits from the Bomb Squad and K-9 units.
Times and locations vary. Contact your neighborhood's Block Watch coordinator for more information or call 602-495-0597. To find out who the Community Action Officer is for your precinct visit: http://phoenix.gov/police/bwp1.html
If you live in North Phoenix, one G.A.I.N. event will be held from 3:00-6:00 PM at Paseo Highlands Park, located at 35th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road.
