Will Minneapolis take the top spot for hosting the most National Night Out (NNO) events across the nation for the fourth straight year? Last year Minneapolis once again placed first for cities with a 300,000+ population.

NNO — celebrated the first Tuesday of August each year — is a “community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live,” according to organizers. National officials expect more than 16,000 communities and 37 million people to participate tonight.
