Police Chief Booker T. Hodges, Mayor Tim Busse and City Manager Jamie Verbrugge visits Bloomington National Night Out parties.
More than 325 people registered to host a party in August this year for Bloomington Police’s 39th annual National Night Out event. Each year residents gather and enjoy a summer evening with neighbors, good food and information about keeping their communities safe. Bloomington Police, Fire and other City staff visited nearly every registered gathering.
“It was a beautiful night to learn about crime prevention and connect with community members at National Night Out this year,” Crime Prevention Coordinator Katie Zerull said. “This event is always a highlight for us at BPD.”
Many residents also entered the annual chalk drawing contest. Winners were announced for the most creative piece, best overall and most representative of National Night Out. For more information, visit blm.mn/nno or call Zerull at 952-563-8808.
