ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The Roselle Park Police along with their Emergency Management, EMS, and Fire Department worked together to host a great National Night Out event for the community on Tuesday evening.
Families came out to enjoy the festivities which included free popcorn, a huge water slide for the kids and other activities. A table was set up with SWAT team gear that anyone could pick up and even try on.
Roselle Park Police had a small obstacle course set up with a bicycle and special “Drunk Glasses” to simulate being drunk and getting behind the wheel. Kids and adults where able to see how drinking can effect your ability to drive. Roselle Park Mayor Carl Hokanson, who was instrumental in starting that program many years ago, took to the bike himself and gave a demonstration of the course.
There were many different types of police units and fire trucks for everyone to look inside and on some even step on or get up into the cab of the trucks.
