Minnesota Night to Unite is observed annually on the first Tuesday of August. The event is designed to promote local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnership, and heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.
Each year we invite and encourage neighbors to observe Minnesota Night to Unite by holding block parties and neighborhood get togethers. A great addition to your event would be a visit from Public Safety. Please check back for an invitation link for Night to Unite 2019.
Reminders for neighborhood block parties:
- You do not need to register your Night to Unite block party but you may request a visit from public Safety personnel. Due to the number of events, we are not able to establish a specific time for our visit.
- If you are blocking off any roadways for your block party, please do so with temporary, easy to remove items such as saw horses or caution tape. The area must still allow access to emergency vehicles and residents that are not participating.
Contact Michelle Okada at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (651) 714-3600 with questions regarding block parties or Minnesota Night to Unite.
Night to Unite is sponsored by the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association, AAA of Minnesota/Iowa, and local law enforcement agencies.
Requests for Public Safety attendance on dates other than Night to Unite should be requested at least two weeks prior to your event and will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Staff will confirm availability five days before your event.
