Join your neighbors and the City of Osseo this August for the annual Night to Unite in Osseo and across Minnesota. Sponsored by the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association, AAA and local law enforcement agencies, Night to Unite celebrates and strengthens neighborhood and community partnerships. Every year, there are hundreds of crimes that can be prevented just by looking out for your neighborhoods and each other. And Night to Unite is the place to start building those relationships. It is an opportunity for neighborhoods and communities to band together, enjoy a summer evening, and get to know who lives in your neighborhood. With Night to Unite being held on Tuesday, August 7th, the City of Osseo will be hosting a city wide Night to Unite celebration on the city campus and Boerboom park from 5:00p.m. to 8:00p.m. This event is intended to bring residents from all over the city, to one location, so they can meet and help build a safer and more prosperous community. There will be a variety of things to do during this event, such as a Taser and Jaws of Life demonstrations, face painters, large/yard games, tours of the police and fire departments, music, food and all for FREE! This event will be catered by Max Cakes and sponsored by the City of Osseo, Osseo Police/Fire Departments and Premier Bank. If you are interested in hosting an individual party on your block, we will still have officers and fire fighters availabel to attend. Registration forms can be picked up at the Osseo Police Department, or online at the city’s website, www.discoverosseo.com. All registration forms for individual parties must be turned in by Tuesday, July 31st, by the end of the business day. If you have any questions about the city wide event or hosting your own party, you can contact Officer Anthony Mortinson at (763) 424-5444 or send an email to tmortinson@ci.osseo.mn.us. We hope to see you on August 7th!

Information for local Osseo residents and business owners. On Friday, April 20th at 10:00am, there is a school walkout planned for students across the country relating to gun violence/legislation efforts for gun control. Osseo HS students will be participating in this event and will be leaving the school. Per the district, those students that are participating, will have to leave the campus for the remainder of the day. As a result, there may be an increase of students in the downtown area and neighborhoods at that time. While we are not anticipating any problems arising from this event, we want residents and businesses to call 911 if they have any problems or incidents that transpire during this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the police department at (763) 424-5444.

Happy Easter everyone! We hope you all stay warm and enjoy your time with family and friends!

Just want to wish every a Happy and Safe St. Patrick's Day! Have fun, drink responsibly, get yourself a sober ride home, and if you chose to drink and drive, no luck of the Irish will protect you from going to jail.

This benefits in two ways.
