Sheriff’s Office invites neighborhoods to register for Night to Unite

Night to Unite is back in 2021 and will take place on Tuesday, August 3rd, with most neighborhood events being scheduled between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.  Night to Unite encourages neighborhoods to join the national celebration and participate in block parties, cookouts, or events to get to know one another and promote community safety.  Neighbors knowing neighbors is one of the most effective ways to prevent crime.

Sheriff Luke Hennen, K-9 Deputy Floyd, Patrol Deputies, 9-1-1 Dispatchers, Jail Correctional Officers, and Mounted Posse Reserve Deputies will all be making appearances around the county at various Night to Unite parties!  Residents and businesses in the 10 townships of Scott County and the city of Credit River can request Sheriff’s Office personnel to attend neighborhood parties by registering on our website:  For other communities in Scott County (within city limits), please contact your local law enforcement agency.

“Night to Unite gives us the opportunity to meet with our citizens and discuss ways we can help each other prevent crime in our neighborhoods,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “The partnership between law enforcement and community is the key in continuing to make Scott County a great, safe place to live."

In the interest of community safety, the Scott County Sheriff's Office may modify our participation and procedures to comply with the Governor’s Executive Orders and recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health and CDC. If you choose to participate, we encourage you to follow current state guidelines on gatherings, social distancing, and face masks. Our top priority is to keep our residents and staff safe and healthy.

If you would like Sheriff's Office personnel to attend your event, please submit the online form by July 23rd.  If you have any questions, please contact Community Engagement Deputy Amy Lueck at 952-496-8862 or
