Just before the moment of truth...

Mt. Lebanon Police Association members once again participated in the Pittsburgh Polar Plunge in the first weekend in December (I would have posted sooner but feeling just returned to my hands!!!). Officers from numerous law enforcement agencies formed team and raised money to benefit the Special Olympics.

The Association, together with the Police Department, assisted in making the tradition a little safer for our children. Little ghouls, ghosts, and goblins were provided with glow sticks to make them more visible during their evening quest.

The Mt. Lebanon Police Association helped sponsor and operate this week long event for children age 9-12. Participants were able to engage representatives from Police, Emergency Medical Services, and Fire in order to explore and appreciate a life in Public Safety.

Despite less than perfect weather, there was a nice turn out for the Association sponsored car show this year. Patrons were able to stroll up and down the Washington Road Business District and check out classics from various eras. The proceeds from the car show help support the Police Department’s youth and community programs.

This year we recognized our 40th year as an organization. Congressman Tim Murphy provided Jim Hughes an official proclamation at our annual car show commending the Mt. Lebanon Police Association, it members, and its supporters for continued contributions to the community.

This year, the Relay for Life held at the Mt. Lebanon High School hit a little closer to home for the officers of the Mt. Lebanon Police Association. Detective Corporal Mary Eichinger, the first female police officer in Mt. Lebanon, passed away from lung cancer after being retired only a few short years. Officers met at 1600 hours (4 p.m.) to walk a lap in unity to honor the memory of Mary and show support for the race to a cure. Several officers committed to doing laps for hours during the event.

Near the end of every school year, the Mt. Lebanon Police Association continues the tradition of awarding several scholarships to students who have exhibited good citizenship and a focus on serving the community. In 2013, three scholarships were awarded to Mt. Lebanon High School students. We congratulate them and wish them well in their civic minded pursuits.

Probably the most anticipated and enjoyed exercise is a trip to the range. “Cadets” are exposed to the various tools and weapons used by the Department. Ultimately, they even get a chance to try them out… under close supervision of course!

Once again, the Mt. Lebanon Police Department and Police Association conducted the ever popular citizens police academy. People of all ages and groups got into the act of policing in the nine week program. Participants were exposed to and tried out various techniques. Here, Detective Heidenreich teaches a class about evidence and crime scene investigation.
