Use tip411 to Share Program, Event Information & to Promote National Night Out

You know to use tip411 to share community alerts about crime and public safety information, but did you know tip411 can be a great tool for sharing program and event information?

Brooklyn Park Police in Minnesota recently sent the following notice using tip411 to let their community know about upcoming plans to participate in National Night Out:

Register Now for National Night Out!

Celebrate National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4th!  Brooklyn Park’s National Night Out (NNO) program is nationally recognized and continuously earns awards every year.

National Night Out is the cornerstone of our crime prevention efforts in Brooklyn Park.

From approximately 5:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. we ask you to lock your doors, turn on your outside lights and spend the evening with the neighbors. Many neighborhoods host special events such as block parties, cookouts, visits from police, fire and other city officials, youth contests and music.  

Your event does not have to be large or elaborate. It can be as simple as having a conversation in your neighbor’s yard. The important thing is to talk to and get to know your neighbors.

 You must register your neighborhood party to be eligible for one of the city vehicles to visit and to receive a NNO “goodie bag.”  Registration forms must be received by Friday, July 24th.  You may register your National Night Out party by going online to or call Gerry Gibbs at 763-493-8284.  Listed below are the dates and times you can pick up your neighborhood “goodie bag” at the Police Department, 5400 85th Ave. No.:

Saturday, July 25th:  10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Tuesday, July 28th:  4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Thursday, July 30st:  4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

 ***Please remember we have officers and visitors scheduled until about 8:30 p.m. So if your party disperses before that time you may miss your visitor***
