Tonight is National Night Out, also know as America’s Night Against Crime, where we celebrate our police officers who work hard to make our communities safe places to live. Jersey City will be honoring its officers in four locations: Pershing Field, Hamilton Park, Audubon Park and Arlington Park.
Mayor Fulop will be stopping by each location to assist the Jersey City Police Department and local service organizations in providing tips to citizens about how we can all work together to make Jersey city a better place to live.
