Safe Summer Night Schedule

Hot dogs. Hamburgers. Activities for kids. Opportunities to meet the officers who patrol your neighborhood.

It’s Safe Summer Nights season in Saint Paul!

The Saint Paul Police Department and Safe Summer Nights have once again partnered to host a series of neighborhood barbecues from 5 to 7 p.m. every Thursday evening starting May 18 through Aug. 31.

The free, public events will feature food, activities for children and ample opportunities for attendees to meet their Saint Paul police officers. The department will also bring its horse, K9 and motorcycle units to the cookout—and 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.

Food for the event is donated by the Safe Summer Nights organization, a group of businesses and volunteers who are dedicated to making Saint Paul a safe place to live, work and play. The Safe Summer Nights program started three years ago as a way 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.
