Last week, a team of teachers at Jefferson Middle School selected several students to receive Citizenship Awards. The recipients were chosen based on demonstrated leadership and their ability to model the way by choosing to “Do The Right Thing.” The Mt. Lebanon Police Association provided the winners with gift cards as an additional special token for making positive choices, being model citizens, and contributing to make the school a better place.

The South Hills leg of the event began near the intersection of Castle Shannon Boulevard and Washington Road. It, like all the other local legs that day, ended in the meetings of various teams at Station Square in Pittsburgh. Officers who ran received an incredible welcome from children outside of Washington Elementary and Mellon Middle Schools. Thanks to all who participated, helping to bring much needed awareness and funds to this worthy cause!Torch Run - Team

Polar Plunge - Chief Lauth

The 2015 Pittsburgh Polar Plunge weekend benefiting Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) took place on December 11 – 12, 2015, raising more than $350,000. The two-day event featured a Friday Night Splash Party in Station Square followed by a dip in the Allegheny River by Heinz Field on Saturday morning. More than 1,000 brave souls jumped into the cool waters and were “freezin’ for a reason” in support of nearly 20,000 Special Olympics athletes. Once again, members of the MLPA stepped up to raise funds before stepping off into the river. Great Job!!!

The Association, together with the Police Department, continued with the annual tradition of making Trick or Treat a little safer for your children. Little ghouls, ghosts, and goblins were provided with glow sticks free of charge to make them more visible during their evening quest for goodies.

Trooper Kenton Iwaniec loved hunting and the outdoors. To honor his memory and to help reduce the number of lives lost as a result of impaired driving, the Trooper Kenton Iwaniec Memorial Foundation held its forth annual sporting clay event in September 2015 at the Shooting Academy at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. This event helps to both increase awareness about the danger of driving impaired and get needed tools into the hands of sworn officers to detect/apprehend drunk drivers. The MLPA once again sponsored a team of four officers who participated in this amazing event.
