National Night Out
Tuesday August 4, 2020 or September 15, 2020, 5:30-8pm (was previously announced as postponted until Tuesday October 6, 2020).

National Night Out (NNO) is an event organized by local police departments throughout the country. Its purpose is to get neighbors to meet each other and local police department representatives to build a healthier, safer community.


NNO is not just one night of the year, but the culmination of year-long crime prevention activity in all Minneapolis neighborhoods: people working together in block and apartment clubs and other networks to prevent and address crime and other neighborhood problems. It is an occasion to celebrate past successes, discuss current challenges or issues, and re-dedicate to collaborative efforts with neighbors, police, businesses and others to improve the quality of life in our city. NNO is the largest event of its kind in Minneapolis and the country.
