In an effort to continue crime prevention efforts throughout our community, and to continue the momentum from Spokane’s National Night Out Against Crime, the City of Spokane is partnering with Spokane C.O.P.S. to launch the #SpokaneStrong Neighborhood Safety outreach campaign.
Volunteers can sign-up via Volunteer Spokane to go door-to-door getting to know their neighbors and help distribute information on safety tips (provided by the Spokane Police and Fire Departments), important neighborhood resources and ways to get involved in neighborhood safety efforts. When signing up on Volunteer Spokane, volunteers will be able to watch an introductory video, view instructions and find details on how to get started.
“Partnering with our community through volunteers and great partners like Spokane C.O.P.S who work hand-in-hand with law enforcement help us all reach our common goal - a beautiful, vibrant and safe city to live, work and play in,” says Spokane Police Chief Craig Meidl.
The goal of the #SpokaneStrong Neighborhood Safety Outreach Campaign is to establish a neighborhood safety prevention mindset. Neighborhood safety takes a community effort and helps the efforts of our first responders. The campaign is another important step forward in making Spokane the safest city of our size.
