163 American Flags on Display at Police Station

The 163 American flags installed in the front of our station are there to commemorate each officer killed in the line of duty in the United States in 2018. National Peace Officers' Memorial Day is May 15. 

There are two flags located directly in front of our doors that represent the officers from Pennsylvania that lost their lives this past year; they are Officer Alex Sable of the York City Police Department who died after suffering a heart attack during a SWAT  training exercise on May 6, 2018.  Alex served as an officer for (4) years and was a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran.  He is survived by his wife and three children. 

Corrections Officer Mark Anthony Gaspich  suffered a heart attack while working at the Penna Department of Corrections in Camp Hill.  Officer Gaspich is survived by his father and two brothers.
