Nominate a block club or youth volunteer for Building Blocks and Ruhland police awards

The Minneapolis Police Department is seeking nominations for its annual Building Blocks and 2008 Teresa S. Ruhland Youth awards. The Building Blocks awards recognize successful block clubs in the city, and the Teresa S. Ruhland Youth Award recognizes the efforts of a volunteer who works with young people.

Minneapolis has a long tradition of strong block clubs that work with the police to prevent crime, connect neighbors, and take on issues in the neighborhood. The Minneapolis Police Department recognizes this partnership by giving its annual Building Blocks awards to the most active and effective block clubs in the city. The deadline for the receipt of nominations for the annual Building Blocks awards is Friday, Jan. 23, 2009.
