August 3, 2021

TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Tonight National Night Out was held at Cadwalader Park, an annual campaign that promotes police-community partnerships. The event returns to the City of Trenton tonight after the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic and featured a showing of Trenton-native Athing Mu’s gold medal winning performance in the 800 meters early this morning at the Tokyo Olympics, along with free food, music, youth activities, and a bike raffle.  

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie by bringing police and residents together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, typically on the first Tuesday in August. Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.
