Cities Host National Night Out

Posted: Updated:

Cities all over the nation, including Minot, got their communities together tonight for National Night Out.

The Minot Police Department teamed up with Target and many other community members to host the event. There were free games, food, music, face painting, and law enforcement special equipment displays. National Night Out is used to promote public safety and to give recognition to those who keep our community safe.

“Right now there’s a concerning need for people to feel safe, and so this is a great opportunity for the people in our community to come out and meet law enforcement, meet the fire departments, and all of our local law enforcement too,” says Sgt. Margie Zietz of the Minot Police Department.

The goal of National Night Out is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and send a message that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
