The National Night Out serves as an annual community-building campaign to promote police-community partnerships and designed to make neighborhoods safer and more caring places to live.
"This is the most diverse ward in the Atlantic City," Councilman Muhammad Zia said. "Over 17 nations live is this ward."
"The National Night out is an important part of community relations with law enforcement," said Atlantic City Council Vice President Kaleem Shabazz. "It's a chance to see the police in a relaxed atmosphere."
"The main goal is to let the community know we're here for them," said Police Chief James Sarkos. "We're regular people just like them. The National Night Out shows the human side of law enforcement."
