The Safe Summer Nights program is designed to provide opportunities for police officers to become acquainted with residents of the neighborhoods they serve over a meal rather than during times of trouble. The initiative began in 2014 when Safe Summer Nights partnered with the Saint Paul Police Department and the Saint Paul Parks & Recreation Department to host events in Saint Paul that brought neighborhood families and police officers together in a picnic-type setting. Safe Summer Nights help bridge the gap between police and the people they serve.
When: Aug 1st
The FREE, public events feature food, activities for children and ample opportunities for attendees to meet their Saint Paul police officers. The BearCat vehicle, which is always popular with kids, will be there too. Bouncy houses and climbing walls have also been known to appear, thanks to Saint Paul Parks & Recreation.
