APPD Officer Brings the Community Together

Asbury Park, NJ – August 2, 2016 – Week six of the the 10-week Levitt AMP Asbury Park Music Series continued at Springwood Park with Dr. Cheeko and Random Test. Construction of the park was completed just over one month and a half ago, and the grand opening was held on June 18th. This was the first public park ever built on the west side.

During the performance of the Bob Marley hit, “Could You Be Loved?” Asbury Park police officer, Craig Breiner, began to dance. His joy and positivity attracted the attention of community members and residents, who joined him immediately. Lucky for us, the scene also attracted the attention of a few cameras…

The video has been viewed over 35,000 times. You can watch the video and help spread this positive message, one that is so important in our country’s time of turmoil, here:
