Montclair, NJ – On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, The Montclair Police Department will be taking part in the annual National Night Out. This event is recognized throughout the country as a way for members of the community to come out and spend a safe evening with emergency personnel from their communities. Members of the public will get an opportunity to speak one on one with law enforcement officers from their cities, along with other emergency personnel. Children will also get to see, up close and personal, all of the equipment their first responders utilize on a daily basis.

As they did last year, The Montclair Police Department and their partners will be holding National Night Out on South Park Street and Church Street, closing off both roadways, and creating a safe environment for all those that choose to come out. The event will be held from 5pm to 8pm. Members of The Montclair Police Department, Montclair Fire Department, Montclair Ambulance Unit, and Montclair Animal Shelter will be on hand to speak with individuals and display their equipment. Safety brochures and other novelty items will also be available for all those interested. Local shops and vendors from throughout Montclair will also be set up with all sorts of activities and gifts for families.

What made last year’s event and all the other events so successful were all the contributions made by members of the community and those that took part in the event.

If you would like to make a monetary donation or if you have any questions, please contact Officer Callum Higgins at or call 973-509-4775 option #5. Checks can be made out to the Montclair Police Foundation.
