FAIR LAWN - "It seems to grow every year," one police officer said as he munched on a hotdog at Fair Lawn's National Night Out for families.

On Aug. 1, the borough's emergency volunteers and police officers were out in force, displaying their trucks and mingling with parents and children who enjoyed music and a carnival-like atmosphere at Schmidt Field, adjacent to Memorial Middle School.

National Night Out, according to the official website, is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out is intended to enhance the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. And, it is meant to provide a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
