RED BANK: COPS + KIDS + COPTER = FUN


Always fun and mind-blowing for kids, Red Bank’s annual National Night Out Against Crime once again featured a visit by a military helicopter to Count Basie Park Tuesday night.

The police-sponsored festival featured free food, games, music and community information, organized this year by Patrolman Milton Gray IV. But once again, the New Jersey National Guard Black Hawk copter stole the show, giving kids an opportunity to explore the aircraft inside and out.

RED BANK: COPTER STARS AT NIGHT OUT

Hundreds of Red Bank residents turned out for the annual police-sponsored National Night Out Against Crime festival at Count Basie Park Tuesday night.

The stop was the second of the night on the Greater Red Bank Green for the Lakehurst-based chopper, following an appearance at Little Silver’s National Night Out at Markham Fields.
