Scoops with the Sheriff!
On Tuesday, June 28, 2022, the Tioga County PA Sheriff’s Office presented Scoops with the Sheriff at Pen & Jerry’s in Middlebury, PA. Citizens from around the region came together to enjoy ice cream with the Sheriff and his team.
Sherrif Frank Levindoski stated, “this is an event for the community and law enforcement to get together. It’s very important for law enforcement to get out into their communities so that they know their residents. It’s very important that they are visible in their communities as well. First and foremost, everyone loves ice cream. So what a great way to bring law enforcement and the community together, especially our youth members out there. It’s important to have these events so that the community, especially our youth, sees the other side of law enforcement.”
Sherrif Levindoski went on to say, “it’s not always about law enforcement. It’s the non-enforcement times where we need to get out there and share with the community. And, with that, it also helps break down those barriers, it helps break down or eliminate bias – and that’s on both sides, the community and law enforcement officers as well. And I also believe that it helps with stereotyping.
The event was a success, the ice cream was delicious, and the Sherrif’s Office plans on doing more events like this in the future. For example, National Night Out is a community-police awareness-raising event in the United States, and locally here at Ive’s Run Campground to be held on August 2, 2022. Mark your calendars now and plan to attend. You can find more information at the Tioga County Sherrif’s office.
