2017 National Night Out

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys celebrated this year’s National Night Out with our friends at the Chicago Police Department’s District 009.  National Night Out (NNO) is an annual celebration that takes place on the first Tuesday of August in communities across the country.  This event seeks to promote peace and partnerships between the police and the local community. District 009’s event was hosted at McKinley Park in the back of the yards neighborhood.  The event included live music, diverse food vendors, kid’s activities, and raffles. Community organizations were also in attendance to educate the public regarding programs and initiatives currently being offered in their local neighborhoods.

Our Chicago injury attorneys commend the Chicago Police Department for a job well done in the planning and execution of this successful event.  This celebration was a true representation of the local community.  From a multi-cultural and cross generational standpoint, the event drew the support of all the different groups that make up this great community.  It was also a beautiful sight to witness the friendship between the police and the local citizens. Much relationship building has taken place over the years to foster the kind of trust and partnerships they now enjoy.  It is all about planting seeds that one day will reap the kind of harvest we all desire, peace.
