Press Release: Mayor Brian P. Stack and the Board of Commissioners will be hosting National Night Out August 1st


Mayor Brian P. Stack and the Board of Commissioners will host National Night Out Against Crime 2017 on Tuesday, August 1st from 6 PM to 10 PM on Bergenline Avenue from 34th to 42nd Streets in Union City.

National Night Out began in 1984 with 2.5 million people from neighborhood watch groups, civic groups and law enforcement agencies in attendance. To date, more than 35 million people throughout the United States and Canada participate in various events in support of crime prevention efforts.

“The Union City National Night Out Event is more and more successful each year,” said Mayor Brian P. Stack. “Residents enjoy speaking and interacting with the Union City Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies. It has always been important to foster a relationship between the police department and the community. That relationship is a good one as evidence by the sizable turnout at our National Night Out Event each year.”

Crime prevention and quality of life issues remain a priority in Union City. “I remain committed to hosting events like National Night Out and over 100 police community meetings annually for residents,” said Mayor Stack. “Community participation is crucial in keeping crime low and increasing the quality of life for residents.”

“We hope all residents come out to the National Night Out Event and meet the police officers that are patrolling their neighborhoods each and every day,” said Chief Richard Molinari. “We rely on the community to be our eyes and ears and alert us if something is suspicious. Our “See Something — Say Something” Campaign and National Night Out events have been so successful because of the participation of the community.”
National Night Out initiatives include crime and drug prevention awareness, building neighborhood and police partnerships, generating support for local programs, and sending a message that criminal activity will not be tolerated in the neighborhoods of city.
