Crowd turns out for National Night Out in Hackettstown (VIDEO & 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 St. It was scheduled from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. but ended at 8:00 p.m. due to the inclement weather.

For a two-hour stretch, residents still had the opportunity to interact with members of the police department in an evening that offered a K-9 demonstration by Ptl. Laver and K-9 Jada, and 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, and Wawa handed out free treats to visitors. Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar provided free food.

Due to thunderstorms, the free swimming at the community pool, and the free showing of the movie Incredibles 2 (Sponsored by the Hackettstown Recreation Commission) were canceled.
