Night to Unite
Save the date – Tuesday, August 1, 2017 is Night to Unite!
Rosemount has participated in Night to Unite for many years. Night to Unite (NTU), which is sponsored by the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association, AAA of MN/Iowa, and local law enforcement, is a continued theme of celebration and of strengthening our strong neighborhoods and community partnerships.
On Night to Unite residents of Rosemount and across Minnesota are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors. Many neighborhoods throughout Rosemount will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, visits from Police, Fire, and local officials, contests, and youth activities.
The connections that are made and strengthened through Night to Unite carry far beyond this evening. Close-knit neighborhoods are safe neighborhoods because neighbors look out for each other and know when something suspicious is occurring in the neighborhood. Night to Unite is Minnesota’s largest crime prevention event. It’s the perfect way to get to know your neighbors and build a safer community. Last year approximately 70 parties were held in Rosemount and we hope this year there will be even more!
Police, Fire and other City representatives will visit registered block parties between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. They will also collect personal hygiene products to assist Dakota County families in need. Items are needed such as toilet paper, shampoo, soap, tooth brushes, toothpaste, and deodorant.
If you would like to organize a Night to Unite celebration in your neighborhood, please contact the Rosemount Police Department at (651) 322-3137 or email Danielle.firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is due by July 25, 2017.
