Presents From Police
Benefits Children's Hospital

The Shaler Township Police Department, in conjunction with several other area departments, participates in the Presents from Police program that was initiated by Officer Dave Nemec, of the Aspinwall Borough Police Department, in 2010. Every year, the program has grown and officers’ volunteer and transport donated gifts to Children’s Hospital and interact with the children. It is a truly heart warming event for all involved.
