21st annual G.A.I.N event in Yuma


YUMA — October is Crime Prevention Month. Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods (G.A.I.N.) is an event held by police agencies statewide to join forces and promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity.
This event enables area law enforcement, military, fire, and rescue agencies, to bring some of their equipment to display to the public. Other local organizations and non-profits will also be present. All participants are encouraged to speak with the public about a variety of topics such as safety programs, careers, and public safety issues. The G.A.I.N event allows our community to meet our first responders, military, and non-profit personnel to help build relationships and make our community a safer place. We had over 30 agencies, organizations, and non-profits participate in 2022 and hope to have the same amount this year.
G.A.I.N. is scheduled for Saturday, October 14, 2023, from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm in the Target store parking lot, 1450 E. Yuma Palms Parkway. Target along with other local businesses, will provide a limited supply of complementary hotdogs, chips, water, and sodas.
