RAHWAY — The Rahway Police Department will join forces with the residents of Rahway and thousands of communities nationwide for the 27th Annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event on Thursday, Aug. 5.
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for local anti-crime efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
The event will take place in front of the Union County Arts Center on Irving Street from 6 to 9 p.m. Because Rahway is running the event in conjunction with the Rahway Mayor’s Concert Series and the Monthly First Thursday Events, it will not occur on the traditional first Tuesday of the month. Rahway’s National Night Out will showcase a display of emergency vehicles from various agencies. New Jersey Blood Services will have a bloodmobile on site to collect blood donations.
