Crowd turns out for National Night Out in Hackettstown (PHOTOS)
HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – A crowd turned out Tuesday for Hackettstown’s National Night Out, which is meant to improve relationships between the community and police.
The event was held in the field next to the Hackettstown Community Pool on Warren Street from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Residents had the opportunity to interact with members of the police department in an evening that offered a healthy dose of crime prevention awareness.
Fire, police and rescue units and many other organizations brought information, fire trucks, emergency vehicles, and more to give the public and kids a hands-on experience.
Mars Wrigley, Hackettstown Medical Center/Atlantic Health System, and Wawa handed out free treats to visitors. Marley’s Wings and Things on Wheels food truck and Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar provided free food.
Many visitors played WRNJ’s cornhole game and walked away with some great prizes.
There was free swimming at the community pool from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and a free showing of the movie Onward (Sponsored by the Hackettstown Recreation Commission and the Hackettstown Business Improvement District).
Warren County Commissioners Director James R. Kern III and Sheriff James McDonald Sr. visited all of the county’s National Night Out events Tuesday, starting in Phillipsburg and ending in Hackettstown. They presented proclamations honoring the community & police connections.
