Third Annual National Night Out Community Block Party was a Huge Success

Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department is happy to report that its third annual National Night Out community block party, that took place on Tuesday August 1, 2017 from 5PM-9PM, was a huge success. The event, which is designed to build community relations between all segments of the town and its police department, was attended by what was estimated to be a crowd of anywhere between 700-1000 people.

Once again, because of the generosity of various sponsors, all of the food, beverages and other attractions that were on hand were provided to the attendees free of charge.  This year, the crowd was treated to the magic of Mark Calabrese who amazed all with his tricks and mind reading skills. Another addition to this year’s event was the arrival of the New Jersey State Police helicopter, which landed on Palmieri Field and was available for the public to see and take photos with it.

“Since its inception three years ago, this has become the hallmark community policing event for our department. Our officers look forward to hosting our residents and business community to an event where we can thank them for the support our department receives from them all year long” said Chief Anthony G. Manna. “This event could not be possible without our generous sponsors and with the hard work of Sergeant Christopher Niemiec of the department’s Community Services Unit” said the chief.
