LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston will join thousands of other communities across the country in celebrating National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 7, at 5:30 p.m. at the Memorial Oval.

This will be Livingston's 10th summer participating in the annual community-building campaign, which promotes police-community partnerships to make local neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. According to the Livingston Police Department, National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. 

For the first time, Livingston Police Department will be participating in Project 365 through the National Association of Town Watch. This is an effort by police departments to expand on the goals of National Night Out and create a plan to make the community a safer and more desirable place to live. The goal of the Livingston Police Department will be to expand the number of Neighborhood Watch groups within the township.
