On a hot and steamy August evening, the Madison Police Department teamed up with the community of Madison in a partnership to deter crime. Chief Vincent Chirico along with the Madison Police Emergency Services Unit, Motor Unit, Bike Patrol Unit, Traffic Unit, Community Policing Unit, DARE Unit, Detective Bureau and Patrol Division participated in the event. Lt. Jerry Mantone of the Community Policing Division organized the event. Other law enforcement agencies that also participated included: The New Jersey State Police K-9 Unit, the Morris County Pipes and Drums Bagpipers (Patrolman Christopher Keller also provided bagpipes for the event), NJ Transit K-9 and Emergency Services Unit, Livingston PD Chief Michael Erb along with their Motor Unit.
Teams of officers visited various neighborhoods who registered for the event. The residents were treated to demonstrations such as K-9 bomb dogs, ESU equipment and mock drills, motorcycle, command center bus (NJ Transit). All officers interacted with the residents and gave away t-shirts, hats, and toys for the children. Overall the turnout was tremendous and the police department is looking forward to next year's National Night Out.
