Minnesota Night to Unite

Night to Unite is a national event that builds and fosters community bonds between citizens, businesses, and public safety organizations. This annual celebration brings together our citizens and public safety to promote safer communities and address safety concerns. 
Night to Unite Goals:
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support and participation in crime prevention and community policing programs
  • Get to know your neighbors 
  • Build relationships between our citizens and the Big Lake Police Department
Neighborhoods across the nation celebrate with a variety of events and activities, including block parties and cookouts, and visits from the Big Lake Police Department, Big Lake Fire Department, 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. Communities often benefit from this event as neighbors continue to get to know each other, and residents feel more comfortable speaking to officers about safety concerns. 

Registration for Night to Unite 2023 is now open. (Tuesday Aug 1st, 2023) Please consider hosting a gathering in your neighborhood!
