Night to Unite (National Night Out) is a statewide event that builds and fosters community bonds between citizens, businesses, and public safety organizations, such as the Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office. This annual celebration gathers neighborhoods and public safety personnel together to promote safer communities.
Night to Unite Goals are to:
Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
Generate support and participation in crime prevention and community policing programs
Strengthen neighborhood spirits and public safety-community partnerships
Let criminals know that you are committed to keeping your neighborhood safe
Neighborhoods across the state display outdoor lights and front porch vigils and celebrate with a variety of events and activities, including block parties and cookouts, with visits from sheriff’s offices, police and fire departments, and elected officials.
Night to Unite has proven to be an effective, inexpensive, and enjoyable opportunity to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in pursuit of safer communities. Community benefits often extend beyond this single evening event as neighbors get to know each other and the public safety agencies that serve them.
