The Chandler Police Department is seeking out neighborhood groups interested in this year’s annual G.A.I.N. event. G.A.I.N. (Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods) is a day to celebrate the success of crime prevention through community involvement. This event also provides members of the Department an opportunity to express their appreciation to the community for its support. This year’s G.A.I.N. event is scheduled for Saturday, October 22 from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The Chandler Police Department is encouraging all neighborhood groups to participate. Groups may participate through a block party or other type of neighborhood gathering. Groups can then register their block party for a visit by members of the Department’s many units. Visiting member units include Patrol, Motors, K-9’s, S.A.U., and Community Services, just to name a few.
The kick-off for the G.A.I.N. event is September 24, 2011. During the kick-off event a lottery will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. with neighborhood registration to follow at 10:45 a.m. The lottery is being implemented this year to ensure all groups are afforded an opportunity to request the police specialty units they want to visit their block party.
