Police Chief Drew Niekrasz echoed the mayor’s enthusiasm about the event.

“The Bayonne Police Department looks forward to hosting another National Night Out,” Niekrasz said. “This event is one of the many ways in which the police seek to build a stronger relationship with the Bayonne community. National Night Out is a family-oriented event, and we welcome parents and their children to join us Aug. 2.”    

Festivities take place on the lower level of the park, near Newark Bay.
