Register for Goodyear’s G.A.I.N. before September 15

Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods (G.A.I.N.)

By West Valley View staff

Goodyear is planning its annual Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods (G.A.I.N.) events on Saturday, November 4. To receive this year’s party planning kit and be on the official list for participating neighborhoods, groups need to register a G.A.I.N. before Friday, September 15.

As part of a national campaign that promotes community partnerships and camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, G.A.I.N. offers an opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other better while engaging with members of the Goodyear Police Department and city officials.

“The goal for these events is to cultivate strong neighborhoods where people look out for each other,” said Christina Plante, Goodyear’s neighborhood services coordinator. “When you know your neighbors, you can better recognize and report suspicious activity, sending the message to criminals that we won’t allow that in our community.”

To learn more about organizing an event, anyone can download the free online planning guide. For more information on G.A.I.N. and Neighborhood Block Watch, visit and or call Sgt. Alison Braughton at 623-882-7362 or Ofc. Jamie Benker at 623-256-2778.
