Update from your department


We have been waiting for word from York College whether or not they will host our State Police Youth Week camp in June 2021.  On Wednesday we finally received notification from the college that they will not be allowing any residential camps to take place during the summer of 2021.  This means that the State Police Youth Week camp must be canceled again this year.  Please pass the word to all those who may be interested. We are saddened but understand it is in the best interest of all.
