G.A.I.N. Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods
G.A.I.N. stands for Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods. G.A.I.N. is Arizona’s version of National Night Out. National Night Out is a night where communities participate in anti-crime and drug prevention programs. Arizona’s event takes place in October, and it is an annual statewide crime prevention celebration. Not only does G.A.I.N. strengthen ties within the community, it is also an opportunity for the police department to show its appreciation for community support of the Police Department’s efforts in the fight against crime. The celebrations or block parties, take place in various neighborhoods and multi-housing communities throughout the city. Police officers make scheduled visits to the different G.A.I.N. celebrations upon request. Other resources available for request are Handy the Graffiti Buster, McGruff the Crime Fighting Dog, the Mobile Command Center, Special Assignment Unit and other department vehicles, as well as, the popular K9 Police Officers and their K9s. It’s not too early to begin planning your G.A.I.N. event. This is an excellent time to strengthen community partnerships by joining together for food, music fun, and games! Here are some of the main reasons we have G.A.I.N.
The next G.A.I.N. event will be held in October 2013 and the date will be announced in the summer of 2013.
If you have any questions relating to our G.A.I.N. event, please contact Crime Prevention Officer Dan Chavarria at 480-782-4967 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Law Enforcement Torch Run
The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics is an international series of torch relays run by law enforcement officers, leading up to each state’s or nation’s Summer Games. Law enforcement officers raise money in conjunction with respective torch runs for their local Special Olympics programs.
Special Olympics is a nonprofit organization providing year-round training and competition to over 7,000 Special Olympics athletes in the State of Arizona. There is no cost to athletes to participate in these events because Special Olympics Arizona sponsors all participation fees. Special Olympics Arizona is supported entirely by private donations, corporate sponsorships and fundraising activities.
The Chandler Police Department actively participates each year in the W. Steven Martin Toy Drive. The program allows officers to deliver toys to children making a difference in how they view law enforcement in the community. Please click on the above link for more information.
