CEDAR GROVE, NJ - The Cedar Grove Police Department has announced National Night Out 2017 will be held on August 7.  This event, sponsored by the Police Department and the Cedar Grove Municipal Alliance, will be held at Cedar Grove Community Park between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. 
 
National Night Out (NNO) is an event celebrated in communities throughout the United States on the first Tuesday in August.  The Cedar Grove Police Department has chosen 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.
