CEDAR GROVE, NJ - Cedar Grove National Night Out 2017 was held on Tuesday, August 1, 2017.  This event, sponsored by the Police Department and the Cedar Grove Municipal Alliance, is celebrated in communities throughout the United States on the first Tuesday in August.  The Cedar Grove Police Department chose to host NNO for several reasons:  (1) To heighten crime and drug awareness prevention in the community; (2) To generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs; (3) To strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships; and (4) To send a message to criminals letting them know that our community is organized and fighting back.
