Hoboken National Night Out 2019

On Tuesday, August 6, 2019, The Hoboken Police Department and Stevens Police Department will be hosting “National Night Out in Hoboken”.  National Night Out, also known as “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, is an annual, nationwide event that allows the community workers to give back to their community.  The annual event will take place in Hoboken’s centrally located Church Square Park, where a large slate of family and youth-oriented activities is scheduled to take place from 5pm until 9pm.  Come out and enjoy free, delicious food from Gringo’s Tacos and Nigel’s Hot Dog Truck.  We will have a bounce house, water slide, spin art, a photo booth, and various giveaways throughout the night.  The Hoboken Fire Department will be present performing a “Jaws of Life” vehicle safety demonstration.  We will be conducting free child car seat inspections from inside the parking lot of the A J Demarest School (158 4th Street).  There will also be a tent set up for a designated sensory cool down zone for the benefit of children needing a period of downtime.

National Night Out is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

In addition to the participation of various police agencies, several local businesses will be out in full support of this night out against crime.   People of all ages are encouraged to attend.

The National Night Out event is celebrated by over 37 million participants and over 16,000 communities across the United States.

For further information or to set up a table for the event please contact Officer Anthony Fesken at feskena@hobokenpd.org (201-957-2127) and or Lieutenant Melissa Gigante at gigantem@hobokenpd.org or visit our website, www.Hobokenpd.com.
