SOUTH BRUNSWICK – Chief Raymond Hayducka would like to thank all of the residents, businesses, vendors and volunteers who supported our National Night Out (NNO) event. More than 6,000 people attended this year’s event to bring the police department and community together. Staff and volunteers served approximately 2,900 hot dogs, 1,500 bottles of water, 1,000 ice pops, and 2,000 bags of popcorn and chips. Attendees enjoyed music and dance by several South Brunswick High School dance clubs, the Dance Storm performers, the Elephant Talk band, and were provided with entertainment, engaging displays, rides and giveaways.
This year’s National Night Out also showcased resources from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Agents from the FBI gave tours of their Mobile Command Center and SWAT vehicle. FBI K9 “Hoover” also put on a demonstration for the crowd on locating a suspicious package.

We take great pride in serving and protecting the residents of South Brunswick and tonight they showed us their support and appreciation. This special community and police partnership helps continue to make our township a safer place to live.”
