The Mechanicsburg Police Department is proud to be participating in a fund raising event for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region on Friday October 13, 2017.

Six members of the Department, Chief Margaret Myers, Officer Justin Myers, Detective Rodney Temple, Officer Ryan McCormick, Officer Kyle Forry and Officer Evan Shipley will be going “Over the Edge” to help raise money for the Bigs in Blue program.  This fund raising event has the Officers rappelling down an 18 story building on N. 2nd St. in Harrisburg.

The Department would like to thank their Sponsors:

American Legion Post 109

Fairway Mortgage Company

Mary Eberly – Coldwell Banker

M.C. Walker Realty

S.R. Duffie

Whitcomb Tax Services

And two very generous Borough residents Monica and Michael Malpezzi for contributing to this cause.

This is the second year that Officers from the Mechanicsburg Police Department have participated in the program.  In the first year four Officers got “littles” assigned to them in this School Based mentoring program and the hope is that two more Officers will get to participate sometime within this school year.

The Mechanicsburg Police Department feels that the Bigs in Blue program is a worthwhile effort and the money raised by the “Over the Edge” fundraiser will be used to support Bigs in Blue.
