The Susquehanna Township Police Department celebrated Police Memorial Day today with a noon roll call. We were joined in this roll call by Detective Mike Proper (Retired), who was presented with a Purple Heart Medal from a past incident when he was seriously wounded at a Riot. This roll call ceremony was held in Honor of Lieutenant Robert McCallister, our fallen brother who this week was added to the Police Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. Recipients of Awards today were as follows:
The walking trail at Memorial Park is now reopened. The barricades have been moved back to allow for parking at the front area of the park. All other facilities at Memorial Park remain closed until further notice.
