MORRISTOWN, NJ- Morris County’s 12th National Night Out, hosted by the Morris County Park Police and the Morris County Park Commission, returns to Mennen Sports Arena in Morris Township on Tuesday, August 5, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Dozens of municipal, county and state law enforcement agencies as well as fire and rescue units will be on hand to demonstrate and answer questions about a wide range of skills and equipment that bring awareness to the community with a special emphasis on family and the multitude of services available to enrich their lives.

Attendees will be able to investigate essential equipment and emergency vehicles such as motorcycles, ambulances, all-terrain vehicles, fire engines and squad cars, and visit the horses of the Morris County Park Police’s award-winning Mounted Equestrian Unit.

The Park Police will once again offer free Child ID cards, an initiative launched in 2000 that registers more than 1,000 children annually.

There will be free food, drinks, entertainment, ice-skating, giveaways and other attractions.

Each year since 2007, the National Association of Town Watch has named the Morris County’s National Night Out event a National Award Winner.
