Happy Thanksgiving!


From all our families to yours, have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! Remember wear those seat belts when traveling to and from your destination.  If you see a police vehicle or officer on the side of the roadway on a motor vehicle stop, please move over and provide at least one full lane of travel between your car and the police officer. It is a law in Pennsylvania and helps the officer get home safely at the end of his or her shift.

Also, if you are starting your holiday shopping and want to avoid the lines and hassle of going out to make your purchases, why not stop by the Bethlehem Police Mounted Unit’s online store, www.cafepress.com/bethlehemmountedpolice. We have a full lineup of fun clothing and merchandise. All the proceeds of the sales from the online store go to the care of Raven, Pharaoh, and George.

Thanks for the support and Happy Thanksgiving!
