Night Out Against Crime

“One Cleveland Uniting Against Crime: All Lives Matter”

Mayor Frank G. Jackson was joined by Cleveland City Council members, other elected officials, Public Safety officers and City of Cleveland representatives for Cleveland’s 32nd Annual Mayor’s Night Out Against Crime. This year’s event themed, “One Cleveland Uniting Against Crime: All Lives Matter”, gave Cleveland residents an opportunity to meet and greet City safety officials while enjoying fun, family-friendly activities.  

The Annual Night Out Against Crime encourages Clevelanders to unite as a community, foster closer relationships with law enforcement and take a stand against crime. Night Out Against Crime is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer and better place to live. Neighborhood events were held throughout the City in all five Police Districts in Cleveland as well as the country as Night Out Against Crime is a national event.  

Mayor Jackson gave brief remarks at the events held at League Park on Lexington Avenue and at Steelyard Commons on Steelyard Drive in Cleveland. This year’s main event held at League Park included a baseball game with Cleveland Police Officers playing Cleveland youths. In addition, the events included informative and fun activities for the entire family such as entertainment, public safety vehicles, free health screenings, face painting, pony rides, safety demonstrations, super heroes, performances by Showagon and refreshments.

Cleveland’s 32nd Annual Mayor’s Night Out Against Crime events were sponsored by the City of Cleveland Community Relations Board, Cleveland Public Power, Cleveland Airport System, Cleveland Division of Water and TV20.
