by The Office of Mayor Eddie Morán

Jul 28, 2022

Mayor Eddie Morán announced that the Reading Police Department is joining law enforcement organizations nationwide to celebrate the 2022 National Night Out locally and issued the following statement:

“Despite the unfortunate challenges municipalities are experiencing throughout the country, our social media feed has been blessed on several occasions when our officers have engaged with our youth in a basketball match or gone the extra mile for a senior.

Our men and women in uniform are dedicated, hard-working, and passionate servants in the line of duty, sacrificing a lot to keep our city safe.

This August, the popular National Night Out event is back! The Reading Police Department looks forward to spending a memorable night with our residents, family, and friends of all ages. The event will feature a BBQ, music by a DJ, ice cream, open fire hydrants, a dunk tank, over 40 organizations, and much fun.

2021 was great, and for this year, they are planning their biggest event yet, taking over two entire blocks.”

What: RPD 2022 National Night Out
Where: 400 & 500 block of Penn Street, Reading, PA, 19601
When: Tuesday, August 2, 2022, from 5 pm to 8 pm

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
