On August 6, 2019, several CB staff members gathered their promotional carts filled with branded stress balls, bags, and pens and headed off to several neighborhoods around New Haven for National Night Out.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships. Across the nation, millions of neighborhoods take part in the campaign to enhance the relationship between community and law enforcement.
Neighborhoods host block parties, fairs, cookouts, and other events with safety demonstrations, youth events, kid zones, food trucks, and local community organizations.
"National Night Out is a fantastic opportunity for our youth and their families to attend," says Luz Ramos-Ortega, CB care coordinator.
