Join us for National Night Out

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Drug-Free Task Force Coalition members will be joining the Clinton Township Police Department at North Hunterdon High School and the Readington Township Police Department at Pickell Park for this event on August 2nd.

Out in the Community in 2021

On August 3, 2021 the Drug-Free Task Force attended National Night Out in Readington Twp.   Members of the task force spoke with community about safe medication disposal, and safe storage of medication and alcohol.

We partnered with the Safe Communities Coalition Congrats Grads initiative to post signs at local businesses encouraging students to celebrate safely and without alcohol.
