The Neighborhood Group Support Initiative helps residents organize in their neighborhoods, giving residents the opportunity to get more information and resources to neighborhoods, voice concerns, and build relationships with the Aurora Police Department. The Initiative began in 2015 at the direction of the Mayor and City Council to strengthen relationships between neighbors, City officials, and police.
It also reduces crime, builds stronger neighborhoods, and improves the quality of life for Aurora residents. When neighbors know each other and patrol officers and residents work together, neighborhoods become safe, friendly places to live.
National Night Out is an annual nationwide campaign held on the 1st Tuesday in August to bring people out of their homes to build relationships with their neighbors and police officers in an effort to create safer and healthier neighborhoods. NNO events help build positive relationships between law enforcement and residents and strengthen a sense of community.
