Columbia comes together on National Night Out

Columbia Borough celebrated its 4th annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2, 2016. The community came together for some much-needed healing after recent events.

 Lots of free hot dogs!

 Always a hit, Jack Hubley wowed the crowd with a variety of critters

    1. The K9 program existed when the police department was properly staffed with enough officers. The prison K9 guys are full time K9 guys. At the police station they would be taking reports, writing reports, transporting prisoners and any other duty a police officer handles.

  5. IF the boro intends to KEEP the police and NOT consolidate...then they MUST support them 100%.

    Columbia needs help.
    Columbia Police Department needs help and needs to weed out those that think working for us is a CAKE WALK!
