LIVINGSTON, NJ — The township of Livingston will be one of thousands of communities across the country to celebrate its police department on Aug. 1 by hosting the annual National Night Out event at the Oval.

An opening ceremony at the gazebo at 5:30 p.m. will begin the annual community-building campaign, which promotes police-community partnerships in order to make Livingston neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. According to Livingston police, National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community.

By inviting emergency personnel from many law enforcement and public safety entities, the event provides an opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. The event will feature exhibits, safety demonstrations and youth activities presented by emergency personnel who will be on hand to showcase their equipment.

Step it Up Events will be present all evening with its open photo booth. Attendees will be able to pose for a fun picture and receive a souvenir copy to take with them. McGruff the Crime Dog, who is shown above, will be posing for photos at the photo booth.

Hot dogs, pizza and drinks will be provided free-of-charge, courtesy of the members of the Livingston Police and Fire Departments who will be manning the grills. The pizza is being donated by many of Livingston’s pizzerias.

The West Essex YMCA will be providing children’s activities and children are also invited to bring their bathing suits, as the Livingston Fire Department will be setting up an area where they can be showered with water from a fire truck.

In case of rain, the event will be held inside Livingston High School.

Volunteers are needed for various positions including running carnival games for children. To donate, volunteer or to learn more about Livingston’s upcoming National Night Out, contact the Community Policing Unit at (973) 992-3000 extension #3600 or email livingstonpd@gmail.com.
