The Township of Union, in partnership with the Union Police Department, will host National Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday, Aug. 7, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., at police headquarters, 981 Caldwell Ave.
The festivities will include a community picnic, tours of police headquarters, games, music, family activities and more.
"This is a great annual event that brings the community together to meet and interact with the men and women who protect and serve them," said Mayor Suzette Cavadas. “Events like these play a critical role in bridging the gap between law enforcement and the public to make Union a safe place to live, work, and play.”
The Township will also bring back the popular Ident-a-Kid Program the same day, which provides children with identification cards. Ident-a-Kid is sponsored by Investors Bank and will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at their branch located at 977 Stuyvesant Ave.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. It culminates annually on the first Tuesday in August bringing together neighbors from across thousands of communities from all 50 states, United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
