Mayor Fried Signs Executive Order Declaring August 2-9 “Police Appreciation Week” in Robbinsville Township
ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – (July 27, 2020) – For the fifth consecutive year, Robbinsville Township Mayor Mayor Dave Fried signed an Executive Order Friday declaring August 2-9, 2020 “Police Appreciation Week” throughout the Township.
Blue lights will be prominently featured at all municipal buildings, including the Municipal Building, Police Headquarters, the Senior Center, the Department of Public Works and the Fire Department.
Residents and businesses are invited to show their support and appreciation for our law enforcement officers with blue ribbons and/or Navy blue lights adorning their properties beginning Sunday, August 2 through Sunday, August 9. Local businesses wishing to show their support with window signs can pick them up at the Township Municipal Building at 2298 Route 33, or at Police Headquarters at 1117 Route 130 North, this week.
“Showing our appreciation to police officers in Robbinsville and across the country, men and women who put their lives on the line for us every day, is something we are very passionate about,’’ Mayor Fried said. “Anti-law enforcement sentiments currently gripping our nation is at an all-time high. Robbinsville wants to do everything it can to help achieve its goal of a true community partnership and the elimination of racism and inequality in all of its forms.”
National Night Out (NNO), which normally coincides with "Police Appreciate Week," has been postponed to October, 2020 due to the current pandemic.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
"Police Appreciation Week" was first instituted by Mayor Fried in 2016.
