Hoboken National Night Out: August 2nd from 5-9pm
On Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011, Chief Anthony P. Falco Sr., along with the Hoboken Police Department’s Community Policing Unit will be hosting the annual National Night Out.
National Night Out is a nationwide event that allows the community workers to “give back” to their community.
