Press Release The City of Corry Police Department will be taking part in campaign against hunger. The “Corry City Police Against Hunger Campaign” will run the entire month of December. Corry City Police while on their routine patrol can at their discretion instead of issuing a citation or a parking ticket, issue a warning and hand the driver or place on the windshield of a car that can be ticketed a warning stating that we are waiving this issuance of a traffic citation or a parking ticket, in hopes that you will drop off either a food or monetary donation at the City of Corry Police Department 20 East South Street, Corry, Pa 16407. All money and non-expired food donations will be forwarded to the Corry Area Food Pantry. Checks may be made out to the Corry Area Food Pantry. The drivers of vehicles that are stopped or the cars where the warning flyer is placed for a parking violation are under no obligation to make a donation This campaign is not limited to those who are pulled over for traffic violations or cars that can be issued a parking ticket. Anyone can make donations at the City of Corry Police Department during the month of December. The Police Department will have a box in the lobby for food donations, if no one is on station and monetary donations can be placed in the lock box on the wall where parking tickets can be paid when no one is on station. The officers will have discretion on who will receive warnings. Major vehicle code violations (DUI, Fleeing and Eluding, Hit and Run Accidents), major safety issues and reckless behavior will still receive traffic citations or will be arrested. This Campaign against Hunger was brought to the Police Attention by the Corry Journal’s Publisher Bob Williams in his Why or Why Not column in the November 11, 2018 edition of the Corry Journal. The Corry Journal has been gracious enough to print the warning that will be handed out to the drivers or placed on cars instead of parking tickets. The Campaign is based off of the St. Marys Pennsylvania Police Department campaign “Cops for Kids”, where they are issuing warnings for traffic violations and giving fliers asking that the driver think about making a new toy donation at the St. Marys Police Department. In the planning stages of the campaign I had the opportunity to exchange E-Mails with the Chief of Police in St. Marys, Thomas Nicklas, who is a Corry Area High School graduate, on how there campaign works and the type of response they have been receiving. I would like to thank both St. Marys Chief of Police Thomas Nicklas and Corry Journal Publisher Bob Williams for their assistance in helping me put this campaign together in a very short time. Let us all work together to make this a successful campaign against hunger for the entire Corry Area. Richard C.

Corry Memorial Hospital with assistance from the City of Corry Police Department, Corry Barracks of the Pennsylvania State Police, Erie County Department of Public Safety (911) and MCM Consulting Group Inc. from St. Mary’s PA, held an emergency drill at Corry Memorial Hospital on 1/31/17 at 0600 hours. The drill was held so Corry Memorial Hospital could put their emergency plan into action. The drill was an active assailant drill where an upset individual gained access to the emergency room and shot a patient who was arriving via ambulance from a fatal car accident. Once the active assailant shot the patient, he fled from the emergency room and hid. No one was in danger during the entire drill. None of the participants, including the participating police officers had live weapons and all employees and persons in the hospital and entering the hospital we informed of the drill before it took place and while it was taking place. The City of Corry Police Department would like to thank Corry Memorial Hospital for inviting us to participate in the drill. Not only can we assist the hospital on their safety planning but it also is a learning experience and topics for in house training at the police department on what we learned from the drill. Drills like these when done correctly are a learning experience for every agency involved. The Corry Memorial Hospital has done an excellent job over the years in preparing their emergency plan and having drills like the one today to test their emergency plan. It is a pleasure to work with the hospital and be able to train with them on their emergency plan over the years. It is important for all companies and agencies to have an emergency plan and it is just as important to practice the plan.
