On Tuesday, August 3, 2021, at the Camp Curtin Academy Football Field, the 3rd Annual National Night Out was held.

Participating groups included the Harrisburg City Police, Pennsylvania State Police, Dauphin County Sheriff’s Office, Harrisburg High School Cheerleaders, Boys & Girls Club of Harrisburg, as well as many other organizations.

Officer Corey Shoemaker and his K9 partner, Levi represented the Pennsylvania Capitol Police. Levi, an explosive detection K9 was a hit with the children. With a record crowd of over 6,000 attendees, Levi received a lot of attention from people from 2 months of age to 100 years of age.

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.
