The Mt. Lebanon Police Department is breaking protocol, but don’t worry, it’s all for a good cause.   For the month of November, several officers will be growing mustaches in support of “No Shave November”.

 

No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.

 

No-Shave November is a web-based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, and education.  How can you get involved?

 

Participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment. You can choose to put down your razor and set up your own personal No-Shave November fundraising page.

 

If you’re not ready to get hairy, you can take the opportunity to visit the following link and donate to the Mt. Lebanon Police Department.

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 fifth annual sporting clay event in September 2016 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.

On June 1st, Mt. Lebanon Police Association members once again participated in the Special Olympics Torch Run. 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!!!
