LIVINGSTON, NJ — For the eighth-consecutive year, Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC) has made a donation to support Livingston’s National Night Out, to be held on Aug. 2 at 5:30 p.m. at the Memorial Oval this summer.

The national event is designed to strengthen neighborhoods though police-community partnerships. The goal is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, to build support and participation in local anti-crime programs and, to represent the kind of spirit, energy and determination that is helping to make many neighborhoods safer places to live.

Local police officers describe National Night Out as the perfect opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other better. The event promotes various crime-prevention programs that are active in Livingston, including neighborhood watch groups, residential and business security surveys, bicycle registration and crime-prevention tips.
