On the evening of July 20, 2018, the Swatara Township Police High Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) took to the streets once again. The Team has been very successful this year and Friday night was no exception. The evening started out with the Team attending the Swatara PD Hoops with Heroes event at Bishop Park, where officers got to interact with kids and shoot some baskets. Following the event, the Team had 29 traffic contacts, 11 traffic citations, 3 arrests for drug possession, 2 DUI arrests, and served several warrants on 4 wanted individuals.
The next Hoops with Heroes event will take place on August 24th from 5 PM until 8:30 PM at Bishop Park located on Hanshue Street across from the Swatara Middle School.
