Police-community partnerships help communities flourish
More than 16,000 communities participated in National Night Out in 2016.

Thousands of residents in neighborhoods across the country will celebrate police-community partnerships as part of National Night Out, held annually the first Tuesday of August. Resident safety is a priority for many organizations in the NeighborWorks network. Here’s a look at some successful police-community partnerships.

NeighborWorks network member Community Preservation and Development Corp. (CPDC) supports more than 5,000 residents throughout Washington, D.C. Safety, crime prevention and positive resident-police relationships are integral to the long-term success of its communities, particularly those plagued by crime. CPDC conducted a survey to learn more about how to better connect residents and law enforcement.
