Join neighbors across Maple Plain and Independence on Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021, for the 12th Annual Night to Unite in Minnesota. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 in 2020 we were not able to unite. Let’s make up for lost time and come together in 2021! 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:
Chief Kroells said, “A safe community is a top priority for our department. 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 are an opportunity for neighborhoods 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 and 9:00 p.m. on August 3rd, 2021, 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 make a visit to your event. West Hennepin will provide crime fighting tips and recent fraud trends and the fire department will provide fire safety tips for your group. Now more than even we are asking residents to take the initiative and organize your neighborhood event. Get involved and take this opportunity to meet your neighbors.
