G.A.I.N. is Arizona’s answer to National Night Out (NNO), which is held in August. Because of the soaring temperatures we experience in August and because October is also Crime Prevention Month, communities statewide decided to observe NNO in October and call it G.A.I.N.

G.A.I.N. stands for “Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods” and will be celebrated throughout Phoenix on Saturday, Oct. 19. Members of the Phoenix Police Department, the mayor and Phoenix City Council members, the Phoenix Fire Department, Neighborhood Services Department and countless others will be visiting registered G.A.I.N. events throughout that day.

Registrations for your G.A.I.N. event must be completed by Oct.2 to be eligible for a visit and a crime prevention tote. Download the registration form and planning tips at http://phoenix.gov/police/gain.html.
