Invite the City to the Night to Unite Block Party

Night to Unite promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Members of the Victoria Fire Department, Carver County Sheriff's Office, and City Officials visit several block parties throughout the night. Make sure to note on your registration form that you would like them to visit your party. City visits are capped at the first 20 requests. The City will reach out to the main contact in July with more information on timing once the route is set. Visits from the emergency services team may be altered due to service calls throughout the night.
