National Night Out and Community Crime Prevention

Attention Shingle Creek residents!

Do you know that one of the best ways to keep a neighborhood safe is by getting to know your neighbors? With National Night Out (annually on the first Tuesday night of August) right around the corner, if you’ve been thinking about having a block club party, it’s not too late to register your party and to apply for a block event closure permit if needed. First Deadline is July 18th, 2017 for closing street permits. 

This year SCNA will be offering a National Night Out incentive to all block club parties that register and have a block club party! Be watching this page for more details!

If you haven’t had a block club party on your block or need help getting started, contact SCNA at mpls.scna@gmail, 612-597-9464 or Facebook us a message! We can help!

The Shingle Creek Neighborhood Association is a resource point for neighborhood residents to get connected as neighbors. We encourage residents to get involved locally and consider becoming a block club leader to help neighbors get connected. Knowing your neighbors is just the starting point to helping keep your neighborhood a safe place to live, work and play. To get started becoming a block club leader contact our Minneapolis CPS for the 4th Precinct Sector 3 Person Tim Hammett at 612-673-2866 timothy.hammett@minneapolismn.gov

Community Impact Statements for our Community

 If you’ve been to any meeting regarding crime and safety you’ve heard of Community Impact Statements and the importance of letting the courts know how these crimes impact your community. When we speak up about crime in our neighborhoods we are told there are three main things residents can do to combat crime: 1) Call the police, 2) Create block clubs and 3) Do Community Impact Statements when they become available. For more information about current Community Impact Statements see the links below.

There are two ways to find out about current Community Impact Statements for your neighborhood in Minneapolis.
