Minnesota's Night To Unite 2011 Although most South Lake area residents feel fairly safe from criminal activity, crime does occur in this area. One of the best ways to keep it from affecting you and your neighbors is to get to know each other, even if it is just on a casual basis. Minnesota's Night To Unite (MNTU) provides an excellent opportunity for neighbors to become better acquainted. Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, cities and neighborhoods celebrate MNTU with a variety of evening events and activities such as block parties, cookouts, and visits from the police and fire departments. MNTU is an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable way to promote neighborhood spirit and police-citizen partnerships in the fight to keep our communities safe. The benefits your neighborhood will derive from MNTU will most certainly extend beyond the one night.
The South Lake Minnetonka Police Department encourages you to organize a Night To Unite activity in your neighborhood. Members of the SLMPD are making themselves available to stop by these activities to answer questions, provide you with crime prevention tips, and get to know each other. Excelsior Fire District firefighters will also be visiting these block parties.
Please contact Community Service Supervisor David Hohertz at (952) 960-1619 to have SLMPD officers attend your event.
