7/31/2014 10:42:00 AM CFPD seeks hosts for "Night Out"
Night to Unite/National Night Out is Tuesday, August 5, 2014 and is sponsored by the Cannon Falls Police Department.
Night to Unite is a Minnesota version of the National Night Out event, designed to get neighbors together to keep their neighborhood crime free.
The Cannon Falls Police Department has combined Night to Unite and National Night Out.
Both are designed to make residents more aware of crime and drug prevention issues, generate support for local anticrime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Chief Jeff McCormick advises that people who get to know each other are more likely to report suspicious activity at a neighbor's home. Police really appreciate having more eyes and ears watching out for their neighbors, he noted.
At this time, the CFPD has ten neighborhood parties registered. Party times vary between the hours of 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. Time is running out to organize a neighborhood party! If you are interested in hosting a party this year, please contact the Police Department by Friday, August 1, 2014 at 507-263-2278.
Members of the Cannon Falls Police Department, Cannon Falls Firefighters and the Cannon Falls Ambulance Service will be visiting the parties.
