What is G.A.I.N.?
G.A.I.N. stands for Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods. G.A.I.N. is Arizona’s answer to National Night Out (NNO) which is held in August. Because of the soaring temperatures in August, communities statewide decided to observe NNO in October and call it G.A.I.N. This is a great complement to National Crime Prevention month!
G.A.I.N. is a day of celebration for the successes of crime prevention through community involvement. Block Watches, apartment complexes, schools, neighborhood groups, parks, businesses, etc. across Phoenix participate in events to:
Show support for the efforts of those involved in the fight against crime
Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs
Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
G.A.I.N. is also a day for the police to show their appreciation for those in the community that support our efforts in the day to day fight against crime.
