Helping to prevent Crime and Drug Abuse

National Night Out is an annual event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. It is designed to
* Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
* Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
* Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
* Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Churches of Scientology all over the United States participate in National Night Out, supporting their communities and community partnerships with law enforcement. At this year's event, Scientologists also called for parents, educators, and community groups to strike back at widespread drug abuse and crime by initiating strategies for drug demand reduction.
