HARRISBURG- The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Assistant U.S. Attorneys will join law enforcement, community leaders and residents on Tuesday, August 3rd at various event locations to celebrate the 37th Annual National Night Out.

The events Assistant U.S. Attorneys plan to attend are: 

  • Harrisburg Bureau of Police at Camp Curtain Academy Football Field in Harrisburg from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.;
  • Lebanon City Police Department at the Salvation Army building on Guilford Street in Lebanon from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.;
  • Derry Township Police Department on West Caracas Avenue in Hershey from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.; and
  • York City Police Department at numerous locations throughout the city from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.   

National Night Out is a community-building campaign that promotes collaborative law enforcement-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Communities nationwide will participate in neighborhood festivals, block parties, and cookouts, which provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

“National Night Out signifies the essential role the community plays in effective law enforcement” stated Acting U.S. Attorney Bruce Brandler. “We are pleased to join with our local law enforcement partners and the communities we serve to promote this important program.”

“Keeping our communities safe is a top Justice Department priority, as it is for state, local and Tribal police departments across the country,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “Law enforcement is most effective when it has the trust and support of the communities it serves. That is why events like National Night Out are so important and effective; they help to bridge the gap between neighbors and their police departments in a positive and informal setting.”

National Night Out events will be held in several communities throughout the Middle District of Pennsylvania.  For more information about National Night Out, visit their website
