National Night Out
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. National Night Out takes place on the first Tuesday in August every year.

Non-perishable Food Drive
We are proud to partner with the Center for Community Renewal at Saint Mark's Episcopal Church in Keansburg. This amazing local kitchen prepares meals twice a month for those in need. Founded out of a need following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, the kitchen has prepared over 22,000 meals since 2012.
Please help us help them by bringing a donation. Any donation you provide earns you a ticket to the "Dunk a Cop" attraction. One of our officers will brave the cold water as you take aim at the target and attempt to drop them into the tank.
Donations will be collected at the entrance to Memorial Circle and delivered to Saint Mark's by the Police Department the following morning.
