NTU/NNO Appreciation Breakfast
This year we will be kicking off the Night to Unite/National Night Out season with an appreciation breakfast on April 10, 2018 at the Anoka County Sheriff's Office. Those who coordinate NTU/NNO for their respective communities traditionally attend this event to participate in networking, idea sharing, and highlight unique NTU/NNO events that take place in different communities throughout Minnesota.

National Night Out
National Night Out (NNO) also occurs annually on the first Tuesday in August and promotes police-community partnership, neighborhood camaraderie, and enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement. If you are participating in National Night Out, please register your celebration at the NATW website. Once you register with NATW they will send you an organizational guide and coordinator toolkit. You can order National Night Out items directly from NATW using their website.
If you are unsure whether your community celebrates Night to Unite, National Night Out, or both we encourage you to reach out to your local law enforcement agency for more information.
