National Night Out is an annual nationwide event that encourages residents to get out in the community, holding block parties and getting to know their neighbors as a way to encourage crime prevention. It’s a great way to promote community-police partnerships and enjoy a Minnesota summer evening surrounded by friends and family. For more information, see the Minneapolis NNO mission statement.
As with many past National Night Outs, Minneapolis was ranked #1 among all U.S. cities over 250,000 population in 2016. Over 1,500 events were registered in 2016. Was yours one of them? We hope so! National Night Out is on August 1, 2017! If you’d like to host an event or if you’re already in the process of planning an event, email us at [email protected] and let us know!
