About Night to Unite

Night to Unite is a statewide event that builds and fosters community bonds between citizens, businesses, and public safety organizations, such as the the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. This annual celebration occurs on the first Tuesday in August and gathers neighborhoods and public safety personnel together for an evening to promote safe communities.

Night to Unite goals are to:
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support and participation in crime prevention and community policing programs
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirits and public safety-community partnerships
  • Let criminals know that you are committed to keeping your neighborhood safe


Neighborhoods across the state celebrate with a variety of events and activities, including block parties and cookouts, with visits from sheriff’s offices, police and fire departments, 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. Community benefits often extend beyond this single evening event as neighbors get to know each other and public safety agencies that serve them.

2015 Night to Unite

The Washington County Sheriff's Office in collaboration with the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association and AAA of Minnesota / Iowa, is once again sponsoring Night to Unite. The 2015 Night to Unite will take place on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 and will celebrate and strengthen neighborhood and community partnerships.
