Middle Township, Lower Township police cancel National Night Out

Middle Township's Night Out

There will be no National Night Out in Middle or Lower township this year, police said this week.

“The department was hoping to hold the event in October of this year, but out of an abundance of caution for our community and visitors, we have decided to follow other police agencies and cancel,” Middle police said on Facebook

A Facebook post from Lower police cited the same reasons for canceling the annual carnival, intended to strengthen police-community relations via food, games and demonstrations.

The departments plan to have a National Night Out next year.

My beat is public safety, following police and crime. I started in January 2018 here at the Press covering Egg Harbor and Galloway townships. Before that, I worked at the Reading Eagle in Reading, Pa., covering crime and writing obituaries.
