Night to Unite


Plan your Night to Unite on August 3rd!! 

Effective crime prevention begins with strong neighborhoods and community relationships.  The Sherburne County Sheriff's Office urges all Zimmerman residents to participate in Minnesota's Night to Unite on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.  While this may seem like a long way off, it's not too early to start your planning your neighborhood festivities now!

Personnel from the Sheriff's Office, Fire Department and Ambulance Services join in the festivities of Night to Unite by answering questions and providing tours of vehicles and equipment used during the course of their work day. 

Minnesota will be celebrating their local statewide crime prevention event titled Night to Unite on August 3rd. Many of the same ideas National Night Out promotes can be considered with Night to Unite.  Night to Unite focuses on getting to know one another in your neighborhood, building relationships with law enforcement, and bringing awareness to crime prevention. 

This is the time to get together with your neighbors. Choose to keep your neighborhood safe by watching out for each other and reporting crime and suspicious behavior. A Minnesota Night to Unite event in your neighborhood could be as simple as locking your door, turning on your outside lights, and gathering the neighbors in the front yard to get to know each other while sipping some lemonade. Still other neighborhoods may choose to have a BBQ and potluck type atmosphere with games and activities for participants to partake in. It is important that your neighborhood tailors its event to those that live there.

Why register your event with the Sheriff's Office? It’s important to register your gathering so we can do our very best to send a Sheriff’s representative to your event. Consider it a great time to build relationships with your neighbors, law enforcement, and other emergency personnel. It is also an opportunity to rekindle the spirit of your Neighborhood Watch program or to start a new program with the energy from the evening. Download a Registration Form.

A strong community is a safe community. Everything we do to strengthen the ties among neighbors of all ages, backgrounds, and lifestyles makes our present and future that much brighter. We hope that you and your neighbors will join our office in giving crime and drugs a going away party.
