In addition to increasing awareness of crime prevention programs, National Night Out also strengthens neighborhood spirit and community-police partnerships, while sending a message to criminals that "neighborhoods are organized, working with police and are fighting back against crime!”
Chief Haddad stated, “Dearborn is a prime example of a community that works in partnership with its police department and the private sector.  Together these partnerships have made real strides in crime prevention and quality of life issues.”

  • FREE hot dogs, drinks and ice cream

National Night Out, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, is a neighborhood crime and drug prevention event that occurs annually on the first Tuesday in August every year.  Last year’s national campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states.  This year’s event in Dearborn is sponsored by Target stores located in Dearborn.
This event is in line with Department of Homeland Security’s; “If you See Something Say Something” campaign.  Chief Haddad participated in the development of this campaign and he has implemented it throughout the City of Dearborn promoting community involvement in combating crime.
Chief Haddad commented, “It’s gratifying to partner with such a strong national retailer like Target who takes a vested interest in the communities where they are located and are willing to show their commitment to public safety in such a meaningful and constructive way.”  
Chief Haddad is also requesting that in support of National Night Out, all Dearborn residents turn on their front porch lights on August 1, 2017 and make an extra effort to look out for your neighbors.
