On Saturday May 13, 2017 the Shaler, Etna, and Millvale Police Departments with Shaler EMS and WalkBikeShaler will host our 10th Annual Bike Rodeo. Last year's Bike Rodeo had over 70 kids participate, despite on and off rain and cool temperatures throughout the event. Those who braved the elements received a free bicycle helmet and were fitted properly for the helmet. Their bikes were inspected by volunteer bike mechanics and they were instructed on safe riding and "rules of the road" as it related to safe bike riding. All kids were entered into the free raffle for a new bicycle. Through participation of many partners we were able to give away 12 new bikes. Everyone was treated to refreshments throughout the day.
Thank you to all the Bike Rodeo Partners.
The Shaler Township Police Department, in conjunction with several other area departments, participates in the Presents from Police program that was initiated by Officer Dave Nemec, of the Aspinwall Borough Police Department, in 2010. Every year, the program has grown and officers’ volunteer and transport donated gifts to Children’s Hospital and interact with the children. It is a truly heart warming event for all involved.
For more information, or If you are interested in donating, please visit Presents From Police or contact Lt Sean Frank.
