“Our community’s annual National Night Out not only offers fun activities for our families and our children, but is also important in continuing to foster the cooperative relationship between our Police officers and our residents, says Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede. “I hope that many of our residents will join us to send a clear message to criminals that Hamilton Township is united in keeping our community safe.”
“National Night Out is a great opportunity for all Hamilton residents to interact firsthand with not only Hamilton Police Division personnel, but with other first responders from Hamilton and Mercer County. National Night Out is a wonderful way to build good relationships with the residents we serve every day. Without the trust of the residents and their help in reporting suspicious activity and crime, the bad guys win” added Chief of Police James W. Collins.
