UNION, NJ – Union is again gearing up for its annual National Night Out at police headquarters on Tuesday, August 1.

“Our annual National Night Out is a community police awareness raising event that brings our residents together,” said Union Mayor Suzette Cavadas.  “It is important because it lets our residents meet our officers and they can familiarize themselves with some of the safety procedures that our police department has to offer our residents.”

The evening is packed with activities for people of all ages, including face painting, bounce houses and the ever-popular dunk-a-cop dunk tank.  The annual event will also include police headquarters tours, DUI google demonstrations, SWAT exhibits, and police, fire and EMS exhibits.
