We'd like to take a moment to thank the good Samaritan who found a purse in the road after watching a handful of vehicles stop and look inside, then drive off. This individual went out of their way to immediately turn it into the Police Department. Within a short period of time, the purse was returned to the original owner. Thank you for your kindness. If anyone loses a wallet, purse, keys, etc. in London, please turn it into our Department and we will hold onto it until the owner comes in to claim it.

Do you always use this safety feature? We highly recommend it!

The London Police Department lost a dear friend today, Don Wattenbarger. Don served the community as a Laurel Co. Sheriff's Deputy, long-time London-Laurel Co. D.A.R.E. Board Member, and helped many local families through the Cumberland Valley Fraternal Order of Police's annual Shop With A Cop program which he and his wife, Virginia Wattenbarger, were an instrumental part of. Don's immense dedication to the D.A.R.E. Program was recognized through the naming of the D.A.R.E. Scholarships that are awarded annually to North and South Laurel High School students in his honor. He has made a great impact on our community in so many different ways and will always be remembered.
