The Hastings Police Department is encouraging neighborhoods across Hastings to organize a National Night Out gathering on Tuesday, August 5, 2014. National Night Out is an annual event that involves neighborhoods, businesses, and civic groups coming together with their public safety providers and local government officials to increase community connections and to heighten crime and safety awareness.
National Night Out gatherings in Hastings and surrounding communities have included events and activities such as: block parties, cookouts and potluck dinners, neighborhood recognition of a “Neighbor of the Year”, visits by police, sheriff, and fire personnel, youth activities and organized games.
The Hastings Police Department asks that anyone interested in organizing a National Night Out event register their gathering with the Hastings Police Department by calling 651-480-2350 or emailing HPD@hastingsmn.gov. Registration helps police and fire department staff to plan a visit to your gathering. Please plan to provide the address/location of your event and the neighborhood organizer’s name(s) and phone number(s).
