A Message from
Mayor Thomas M. Leighton

Each and every day, members of law enforcement risk their lives in the best interest of public safety to protect the communities they serve. This past September we learned that regardless of being on or off duty, our police officers and state troopers still fall victim to senseless acts of violence. I commend the Pennsylvania State Police and all law enforcement agencies involved for their extremely brave and tireless pursuit of justice for Corporal Bryon Dickson and Trooper Alex T. Douglass. We must never forget their courageous efforts to protect the residents of Pike and Monroe Counties, as well as their commitment to restore normalcy to the community. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the victims, their families, and colleagues that have endured this tragic event.

- Mayor Thomas M. Leighton
