Night to Unite


McGruff the crime dog

Night to Unite is celebrated the first Tuesday in August each year.

Join the Dakota County Sheriff's Office in celebrating Night to Unite! Communities from across Minnesota will be celebrating with their neighbors. Night to Unite was designed to strengthen neighborhoods across Minnesota. Let the criminals know YOUR neighborhood is STRONG and UNITED!


People are asked to turn on their lights, lock their doors and join their neighbors for a fun filled night! What you choose to do is entirely up to you. In years past different block parties have had ice cream socials, barbeques, potlucks, or even live bands. The purpose of this night is to stay connected, network with your neighbors, create phone trees, and keep the communications flowing throughout the year!
