DETROITERS MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER

It's time once again for Detroiters to stand together for Angels' Night, October 29-31. Each year, roughly 50,000 Angels' Night volunteers patrol city streets, turn on their porch lights and watch over their neighborhoods.

We need the help of every caring Detroiter to continue to keep our city safe. We will continue to patrol our city's neighborhoods, turn on our porch lights and adopt vacant or abandoned buildings. Together, we can make Detroit a place where neighbors and volunteers join together to move our city forward. 

HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Parents and teachers, become an Angels' Night volunteer this year! Here's how you can join the Angels' Night effort:

PATROL A NEIGHBORHOOD
Volunteer teams of two or more people will be assigned to patrol a specific neighborhoods. These teams will patrol their assigned areas by car from 6 p.m. to midnight on October 29, 30 and 31.

ADOPT-A-HOUSE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Volunteers are asked to adopt a vacant house or commercial building in their neighborhood and watch that building from 6 p.m. to midnight during the three-day Halloween period (October 29-31).

PROVIDE LOGISTICAL SUPPORT
All citizens are asked to turn on their front and back porch lights, or any other yard lights, from dusk until dawn on October 29-31.

KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS OPEN
This is by far one of the easiest and most important ways to volunteer for the Angels' Night Volunteer Campaign. Volunteers are asked to carefully watch their neighborhood from their porch or window and be on the lookout for anything out of the ordinary. If anything seems out of place of suspicious, immediately report it by calling 9-1-1.

SHOW YOU CARE - WEAR AN ORANGE RIBBON
Wearing an orange ribbon is a way to show that you care about Detroit and serves as a powerful reminder of what neighborhoods can accomplish when they stand together.

WATCH YOUR CHILDREN - ENFORCE THE CURFEW
Again this year, an emergency curfew is in effect for juveniles under 18. It is unlawful for juveniles under 18 to be on city streets, unaccompanied by a parent or guardian, from 6 p.m. October 30 to 6 a.m. October 31.
