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, we 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@hobokenpd.org or Officer Daniel Simone at simoneda@hobokenpd.org. We look forward to working together with you to make our community safer, stronger and more unified than ever before.
