This Tuesday, August 1st many communities and neighborhood block organizations will be coming together for National Night Out. Millions of neighbors will take part in events all around the country (and military bases worldwide) to celebrate the spirit of community camaraderie. There will be block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts, caravans and other community events that will highlight police-community partnerships, discussions, public safety tips, demonstrations, youth events, and much more. In Orange, NJ, block party cookouts are so popular, that the community police officers, local officials, and council people hop around from block to block to engage in conversations and demonstrations that encourage community spirit with local police.
At HANDS, we like to think of the police as Ambassadors of Peace in #OrangeNJ. They are there for you and your family/children when you can’t get to them. That’s why we’re highlighting moments from the past year that showcase the best of what our police do. Thank you for being there when we most need help, protection, and most importantly, community spirit.
