Just a heads up,the turning lane signal light a Lowes intersection doesn't seem to be cycling .
Thank you all for your service. You do not deserve the negativity! Keep up your good work!!
You guys protect lying people and don’t back check anything when someone puts a PFA on someone what a joke and I pay your salary
Thank you for post this information. For me it is clear and straight to the point.
Today on my walk around the block, I was uplifted to see many neighbors were chalk drawing on their driveways cute things and writing positive messages to passerbys! Would love if this were a neighborhood trend everywhere right now! Especially here in the Altoona area. Think about driving past Chapel/Canterberry Drive this evening (before the rain) to catch the inspiration!
To our Logan Township Police Officers, we want to thank you for the GREAT JOB you do andante to say thanks on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, thank you so much and be safe out there
We are now up to 35 kids and their families who will have a Great Christmas this year because of your generosity. We need another $2000 to be able to help the remaining kids on our list. We are not asking for hundreds of dollars or even $25, $5 or $10 will help us get to our goal. Message me or stop at one of the stores to drop off your donations. Anyone who donates will receive a DVD showing Santa and local police delivering gifts on their visits to the families. You also will be mentioned on the DVD. You will receive a breakdown of all amounts of money collected and how it was spent. Thank you
Big shout out to Officer Shay ( dunno if the spelling is right) from the Logan Township Police who took a few minutes this morning to talk to my son and show him the lights and inside of his cruiser. My son loves emergency vehicles and personnel as most kids do. You definitely made his day!
Love our Logan Township police department!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Is there a curfew for noise in the township? Not fireworks, next door neighbor’s having a party with band. Very loud. First loud music started at noon, then band came after storm- he screams in microphone announcements. Drums also very loud. My Family member needs to be at work at 6 AM tomorrow. Neighbor’s have these parties before they lasted till 4. We try to be patient - they are young but enough is enough. It is not an emergency so I tried the non emergency number - got a recording asking for a mailbox number. Help please.
Really good idea to text while driving suv logan cop. Thought you were sliding then realized you were just involved with your phone!!
Anyone else hearing gun shots on Juniata Gap Rd about 11:30pm. I've heard about 10-12 of them so far.
