Join neighbors across Maple Plain and Independence on Tuesday, August 1st, 2017 for the 8th Annual Night to Unite in Minnesota. Sponsored by the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association, AAA of Minnesota/Iowa, and local law enforcement agencies, Night to Unite will celebrate and strengthen neighborhood and community partnerships. 

Night to Unite is designed to:
1.  Get to know one another in your neighborhood;
2.  Build neighborhood involvement by bringing police and communities together; and
3.  Bring awareness to crime prevention and local law enforcement efforts!

MCPA President Terry Thomton said, “I invite neighborhoods in every City and County throughout the state of Minnesota to become involved in Night to Unite activities. This is an opportunity for neighborhoods and communities to band together, enjoy a summer evening and get to know who belongs in their neighborhoods.”

West Hennepin Public Safety would like to encourage neighborhoods to get together between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on August 1st, 2017 to fight crime and take back our neighborhoods. The best crime prevention tool for our communities is “neighbors looking out for each other,” says Director Gary Kroells. If you know who your neighbors are and those neighbors see something suspicious they will call the police.  Get involved and take this opportunity to host a neighborhood party and meet your neighbors.

If you or your neighbors host a neighborhood Night to Unite event, West Hennepin Police Department and the local fire department will make a visit to your event and provide crime fighting and fire safety tips for your group. Take the initiative and organize your neighborhood event. Let’s have a Night to Unite on Tuesday, August 1st, 2017.
