Night to Unite

Night to Unite (NTU) is a fun, popular, community-wide celebration held on the first Tuesday evening in August. NTU is designed to heighten drug and crime prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. From 6:00pm to 9:00pm, residents of Lino Lakes (and across Minnesota) are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police, firefighters, and paramedics.
