KENILWORTH, NJ – Kenilworth residents attended the Kenilworth Police Department’s National Night Out this week to connect with their community services.

Members of the KPD and the Kenilworth Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services were on hand to display their trucks and equipment to parents and children. Games, temporary tattoos, music and food were also available for the town’s entertainment. In addition, classic cars were displayed in the parking lot of Harding School for spectators to admire.

“We had a little later turnout, but the weather was good and I think it went well,” Kenilworth Police Chief John Zimmerman said.

The National Night Out, which was developed by the National Association of Town Watch, aims to strengthen community-police ties and promote crime prevention. It is celebrated annually throughout the country.

“We’re people like everyone else,” Zimmerman said. “It’s a good opportunity to meet everyone face to face, shake hands and put the name to the person and community policeman.”
