Buffalo, N.Y. – Mayor Byron W. Brown will visit neighborhoods throughout the City of Buffalo Tuesday afternoon and evening, August 3rd, to celebrate the 38th National Night Out. Buffalo is among more than 16,000 communities across the country taking part in the annual celebration of neighborhood unity, which is aimed at building neighborhood camaraderie, while reinforcing relationships between residents and local police and fire personnel.

“After a year off from in-person gatherings due to the pandemic, our block clubs, and community and business organizations are once again embracing National Night Out with gatherings in every area of the City of Buffalo,” Mayor Brown said. “The National Night Out initiative helps promote education and create dialogue between residents and our first responders, while also providing our citizens with information on our key city services.”

More than 100 block clubs and organizations citywide are expected to host lock parties, cookouts and other various community events.

Mayor Brown will take part in resident gatherings to mark Buffalo’s National Night Out with visits to the Martha Mitchell Community Center, in the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority’s Kenfield-Langfield development, as well as the City’s Fruitbelt, Pratt-Willert, and Grant-Amherst neighborhoods.

Mayor Brown will be joined by Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood, Buffalo Fire Commissioner William Renaldo, and representatives of the Buffalo Police Athletic League, and staffers of the City’s Department of Community Services and Recreational Planning and Division of Citizen Services.

“Awareness and education are two of the most important factors in reducing crime citywide,” said Mayor Brown, “National Night Out promotes these objectives in a fun and encouraging way while still making safety and community main priorities in our city.”

Mayor Brown, representatives of the Buffalo Police and Fire departments, and other City staffers will distribute brochures highlighting on-going public safety and anti-crime initiatives. There will also be fun give-aways for Buffalo’s youngest residents, including: bike helmets, Child ID Kits, Junior Police Badges, and National Night Out coloring books about city departments and services.
