We would also like to thank the many residents that came out for NNO, helping to make it a great success and a true ‘Community Event‘.  Finally, I would like to thank our NNO Coordinator Officer Carolyn Zajack
for her hard work in bringing the event together along with the rank and file of the Cedar Grove Police Department. An event such as National Night Out demonstrates what a dedicated group of men and women we have serving the residents of Cedar Grove 365 days a year.
