National Night Out - We're Number One
The National Association of Town Watch gave Minneapolis its “National Night Out 2007 Award” for cities with a population greater than 300,000.
This summer, more people than ever participated in NNO events. 62,000 Minneapolis residents gathered at more than 1,117 confirmed NNO celebrations citywide. I’m proud of the work done by the Second Ward Interns along with block leaders to help organize additional NNO parties throughout the Second Ward. I strongly believe that the relationships created and strengthened by events like NNO are among our best crime prevention tools.
