Police Chief Justin McIntire ran towards danger to keep Pennsylvanians safe — and he made the ultimate sacrifice in service to community. - Josh Shapiro

He was an incredible husband, father and friend to many. He was also an exemplary police officer and chief- so many admired and looked up the example he set of how to be a light in the community. We want to come together for her & the kids to help take any amount of stress off that we can. Justin gave his life protecting the community, now it’s our turn to give back to his family. 💙
