Sending our thoughts and prayers to neighboring NLCRPD Officer Strathmeyer as he and other members of the PA Army National Guard 28th Infantry Divison leave for a year long deployment today to the Middle East. Officers Strathmeyer’s father in law is retired LBPD Officer Ronald Sandhaus. Godspeed Officer Strathmeyer and all members of the PA Army National Guard 28th Infantry Division.

On Tuesday a teacher from a local elementary school dropped off a plate of brownies and some artwork that her class had created for us in recognition of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. She asked her students to draw pictures of police officers and how they help the community. After checking out all of the interesting drawings and pictures the students had created, we had an overwhelming desire to share this particular photo. We're going to call this piece "Firefighters need Heroes Too." Now we do realize that fine art is often open to interpretation…….so we'll share our interpretation of this piece! We see a Police Officer, first on scene of course, at a house fire, using brute strength and determination to heave one bucket of water at a time three stories in the air to put out the roof fire and save the day, all with a smile on his face. And often times just as important as what we see in a picture, it's also sometimes what we don’t see. What we don’t see is the Police Officers patrol car, why you ask, because this young artist clearly knows that it has been parked far enough away from the scene to allow the incoming fire emergency vehicles direct and unobstructed access to the scene once they arrive. I'm sure the firefighters at the Lititz Fire Company No. 1 might have a different interpretation of this artwork. #firefightersneedheroestoo

***TRAFFIC ALERT*** 100 BLK of Noble St is currently closed due to the Lititz Borough Public Works Annual 3 V 3 Ice Hockey game!! Just joking, but seriously, that block is closed due to a water main break which has created a makeshift ice surface in the middle of the street/block. Avoid the area, unless you have ice skates, than by all means stop by and lace ‘em up!!

On this day, we're all aware that one of the true meanings of Christmas is giving unto others, but once in a while it's okay to pick out a gift for yourself right?!? So what better Christmas gift to give yourself than the gift of retirement?!? Officer Karl Spidel(pictured in the middle), who joined the Lititz Borough Police Department in June of 1995, ended his tour of service this morning at 0700hours. Members of the Department were on hand this morning as he made his final radio call officially placing himself out of service. In addition to serving the citizens of Lititz Borough for the past 22 1/2 years, he also served in two tours during Operation Iraq Freedom as a member of the Army National guard. During his time in Operation Iraqi Freedom he was struck by shrapnel after and IED explosion, causing significant injuries too which he was able to recover from. Due to the injuries he received during his service to our nation he was later awarded the Purple Heart Medal, a medal that he'll tell you is not one that anyone wants to receive, but nonetheless thankful that he was able to serve his country and live to tell about it. On August 5th, 2015, at 0005hours he was dispatched to a residential house fire on Center Street. A neighbor had called 911 to report their neighbor's house was on fire. Arriving moments later and believing the occupants were inside, asleep, and unaware their house was on fire with the fire spreading rapidly, Officer Spidel forced open the front door, entered the home, and was able to awaken the residents escorting them to safety as the fire department was arriving. Due to his actions during that incident he was the recipient of the 2015 Lititz Borough Police Department Medal of Valor. A Tampa, Florida native, he looks forward to returning to the Tampa area as often as possible, especially during the cold PA winters. Locally he'll continue to serve as the Sr. Vice Commander of the Lititz Springs VFW Post 1463, and last but not least he's looking forward to spending quality time with family and friends. Godspeed Officer Karl Spidel, enjoy retirement!

If you’ve ever wanted to know the face behind the mask when it comes to our “witty” posts, take a few minutes to read this article. We’d also like to mention though that what is absent from the article is that the inspiration behind these posts is a collaborative team effort filled with experiences from our members. Our social media “success” is and always will be a group effort! LBPD social media aside, this is truly a great article that highlights just a few things that make our little town such a great place to live, work, and visit. Enjoy!!
