On Thursday March 1, 2018 The Hellam Township Police Department hosted its second annual awards ceremony. Every officer was recognized for an incident where they went above and beyond the call of duty to assist a victim of a crime, a township resident or someone who was just passing through Hellam Township. Officers were also recognized for their hard work with difficult investigations which eventually lead to the arrest of a suspect. We also recognized the efforts of Acting Chief Adam Schaum (Wrightsville Borough Police) with his assistance in catching and individual who displayed a gun during a road rage incident, and Officer Mike Carpenter (Wrightsville Borough Police) for assisting the department with collecting critical evidence from a violent sexual assault.
We would like to thank our special guest, State Representative Keith Gillespie for attending the ceremony and presenting Staff Sergeant Drew Heistand with a state citation for being the York County Officer of the Year, Officer Seth Reed with a state citation for being the Hellam Township Officer of the year, and Officer Tim Gingrich with a state citation for being a top producer with Penn Dots aggressive driver campaign on US Route 30.
We couldn’t be more proud of these officers, and the things that this department does every day.
