More than 300 people registered to host a National Night Out party in August this year for Bloomington Police’s 37th 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 and Fire visited nearly every registered gathering this year.
“National Night Out has always been one of our favorite events of the year. We had a great time visiting with residents and sharing some crime prevention tips,” Crime Prevention Coordinator Katie Zerull said. “We would like to thank everybody who participated in this fun community building event and working together to keep our city safe!”
Many residents also entered the annual chalk drawing contest. See photo above. Winners will be 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.
