A team of community outreach officers for the NJ State Police took to the basketball courts in competition at an Elizabeth housing complex.
According to State Police, on Friday, June 29th, troopers participated in the 3rd Annual State Police Community Outreach Basketball Game at the Mravlag Manor Court.
Officials say for the past three years, Trooper Richard Tabor has been working with local organizations to build positive relationships between the community and law enforcement. The outreach event gives young men and women from the community an opportunity to interact with troopers and have fun during a friendly game of basketball.
The event was also sponsored by the Housing Authority of the City of Elizabeth and New Life Direction according to State Police officials.
