I thank everyone who had a hand is organizing this event and all the residents who came out to enjoy it.”

Sheriff Toulon said, “National Night Out is one of my favorite events of the year because it highlights the ways that communities and law enforcement work together to keep our neighborhoods safe.  This year, we were so fortunate to partner with Councilwoman Jane Bonner to bring National Night Out to Fireman’s Park in Ridge, and along with Supervisor Ed Romaine and Councilman Mike Loguercio, we welcomed nearly 1000 residents of all ages.  I believe everyone had a great time and I look forward to organizing this event in Brookhaven for years to come.”

Councilwoman Bonner said, “National Night Out in the Town of Brookhaven is a great tradition and I was happy to join with Sheriff Toulon to help make this event such a big success in Ridge. It’s important that residents and law enforcement become familiar with each other so we can all work together to make Brookhaven a better place to live.”

Councilman Loguercio said, “As a member of the Ridge Fire Department myself, I understand how important it is for adults and children to get to know and trust those who are out there working every day to save lives. National Night Out is an ideal opportunity for residents to have fun and learn how they can keep themselves and their families out of harm’s way, and I look forward to coming back next year.”
