MAYOR ERIC JACKSON TO KICK OFF TRENTON’S “NATIONAL NIGHT OUT” AT CITY HALL

 

TRENTON, New Jersey — Mayor Eric E. Jackson will kick off Trenton’s “National Night Out” at a rally in the City Hall atrium on Monday, August 4 at 5 p.m. More than 200 people, including local officials, are expected to attend in honor of the community-police awareness-raising event that is typically held in cities around the country on the first Tuesday in August.

 

“National Night Out’ is a great opportunity for Trentonians to come together to celebrate our iconic city with their families and friends, while also learning about crime prevention, the importance of police-community partnerships and citizens’ role in fighting crime,” said Mayor Jackson.

 

Mayor Jackson will speak to residents, local officials and community leaders at the rally, including City Council members, State Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson-Coleman, State Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, State Senator Shirley Turner, Mercer County Prosecutor, Joseph L. Bocchini Jr., Mercer County Sheriff Jack A. Kemler, Trenton Fire Director Qareeb Bashir and Trenton Acting Police Director Ernest “Ernie” Parrey Jr.

 

In addition, community groups will receive vouchers to pick up supplies from City Beef, such as burgers and hot dogs, that they can use on Tuesday. Four barbecue grills, one for each ward, will be raffled off. Participants will also enjoy music, simple refreshments and promotional giveaways. Mayor Jackson will announce four winners of a poster contest, and award bicycles and helmets.

 

“National Night Out” reportedly involves more than 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases. Acting Police Director Ernest Parrey, Jr., who was appointed by Mayor Jackson on July 1, sees the event as an important forum for the Trenton Police Department to strengthen its ties with residents and community leaders.

 

 “Making more of a concerted effort to connect more deeply with all of Trenton’s neighborhoods is a fundamental part of our plan to reduce crime in the city,” said Acting Police Director Parrey.

 

On Tuesday, August 5 – the official “National Night Out” — some 32 Trenton community associations around the city will hold various activities, including block parties, community sit-outs, cookouts and flashlight strolls. The majority of the neighborhood events will be small gatherings. Larger activities, such as block parties, will involve street closings. In the event of rain, most festivities will be rescheduled.
