Swatara Police host Meet and Eat

The Swatara Township Police Department hosted a Meet and Eat event at Hoy and Latsha Towers in Swatara Township on July 26th.  Director Reider, Lt. Krahling, Lt. Shatto, Cpl. Pokrop, Officer Smith, Commissioner Connolly and Fire Marshall Ibberson were all in attendance for the event.  This event was our first Meet and Eat of the year.  We gave out hotdogs, hamburgers, pizza, chips and water to the residents of Hoy and Latsha Towers.  This provided an opportunity for our officers to get out into the neighborhood and meet some of the residents of the township.  People in attendance had an opportunity to talk to us about whatever was on their mind. As police officers we do not always get the time to just talk to people within our community about things other than criminal activity.  It is nice to discuss those other things like family and personal interests in a relaxed atmosphere when you have time to just get to know someone.  We had a tremendous turn out for this event and the residents were very inviting and appreciative of us being there.  It was a lot of fun interacting with the people who were there!  We are looking to do another Meet and Eat in mid to late August at a different location….please stay tuned for some additional information in the future.
