Join neighbors across Maple Plain and Independence on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, for the 13th 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!
If you want to set up a party in your neighborhood, please register by Tuesday, July 26th, 2022 by completing and submitting the form below.
Chief Kroells said, “Our community safety is the top priority for our department and one of the best crime prevention tools is neighbors looking out for each other. If people know their neighbors, they can better identify suspicious activity and call 911 to report it. Night to Unite events give opportunities for neighbor-hoods and communities to join, 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 2nd, 2022, to fight crime and take back our neighborhoods. The best crime prevention tool for our communities is “the eyes and the ears of citizens looking out for each other,” says Director Gary Kroells.
If you or your neighbors host a neighborhood Night to Unite event, West Hennepin Police Department and the local fire department will visit your event and share crime fighting tips, recent fraud trends, and fire safety tips for your group. Now more than ever we are asking residents to take the initiative and organize your neighborhood event. Get involved and take this opportunity to meet your neighbors!
