Falls Finest Retires After 35 Years of Protecting and Serving !
On August 9th, 2021 at 3:09 p.m., Officer John Yeager logged off the radio for the last time. After 35 years of service with the Falls Township Police Department, Officer Yeager has retired.
Officer Yeager protected and served this community for many years prior to being assigned our Community Policing Unit. He has been an integral part of our department by getting our adults and youths involved in many programs and created the Falls Township Police Youth Police Academy, Citizens Police Academy and Program H.E.R.O for high school students. (This program has someone speak at the high school and share stories about choices they have made and the consequences they received. This program is designed to impact students to hopefully learn a lesson through these cautionary tales). He has instructed D.A.R.E. and S.T.E.P.S for our elementary aged students and participated in the Cops N Kids program. For our High School Students, he has Instructed classed on health, driver’s education and career connection and for several years worked Pennsbury’s Prom ensuring the safety of all attending. He obtained Falls Township Police clothing bins in our township, with the proceeds going towards the Youth Police Academy so there is no cost to the cadets attending. Officer Yeager has been an important part of community events such as Fallsington Day, National Night Out, Coffee with a Cop, and National Drug Take Back and Shredder Day.
Thank you, Officer Yeager for your years of commitment and dedication to the residents not only in our township, but in the surrounding townships where you were an important part helping to educate not only our youth but adults as well. We wish you the best of luck in your Retirement!
