National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer and better places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Join your neighbors for food and entertainment, and an assortment of activities to celebrate and honor community collaboration, healthy neighborhoods, and resident involvement. Established in 2001, the Manchester Weed & Seed Strategy aspires to work as a sustainable collaboration composed of residents, community organizations, government and the private sector to achieve a unified, resident-driven vision for Manchester.
Today, the Strategy is managed by the Manchester Health Department and continues to grow with over 65 collaborating partners who aim to “weed out” crime, drug abuse, and violence, while “seeding in” community empowerment and connections to local services.
