Neighborhood Resources

Love Our Neighborhoods is about inspiring and encouraging people to intentionally develop relationships with their immediate neighbors. Our hope is that the people become a part of this campaign will move from strangers to acquaintances, and from acquaintances to relationships with the people who live near them.

National Night Out

National Night Out now involves over 37 million people and 15,000 communities from all fifty states, U.S. It’s a wonderful opportunity for communities nationwide to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie. While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence, National Night Out represents the kind of spirit, energy and determination to help make neighborhoods a safer place year round. The night celebrates safety and crime prevention successes and works to expand and strengthen programs for the next 364 days.


Neighborhood Watch Group

Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing citizens together with law enforcement to deter crime and make communities safer.
