Crystal Night to Unite
Getting to know your neighbors is the first step in crime prevention. That’s why the Crystal Police Department is encouraging residents to have a party on Tuesday, August 2nd, as Sgt. Brandon Dorr says, “We support Night to Unite, and we encourage block parties and citizens to get together with their neighbors, and come together and celebrate just being together, getting to know each other, talking, just having a good time. A lot of times it’ll include food, yard games, things like that.”
And he adds that if you register your party by July 31st your party could also include a visit from the police or fire department, or city council member, saying, “When it comes to the police department, the fire department, we’ll come out to block parties, visit, say hi, get to talk to people on better circumstances than we usually do. It’s good to get out there, and have conversations, and just meet kids and hand out stickers, things like that, so that’s what we’re looking to do this year.”
Night to Unite is Tuesday, August 2nd. You can find out more information, or register your party by going to http://www.crystalmn.gov under Police.
