    On Tuesday, August 1st, 2017, Police Chief Kenneth Ferrante along with the Hoboken Police Department will be hosting Hoboken’s annual National Night Out at Church Square Park from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

     

    National Night Out is a nationwide event that allows community workers to give back to their community. The goals of National Night Out are to :

    1) heighten crime and drug awareness;

    2) generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;

    3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnership;

    4) send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

    This year, HPD would like to see more of the Hoboken Community involved in this event.

    If you are a local business or organization who wishes to participate in the parade, or the festivities, please contact either Sergeant Melissa Gigante at gigantem@nullhobokenpd.org or Officer Daniel Simone at simoneda@nullhobokenpd.org. Let's make our community safer, stronger and more unified than ever before.
