The South Londonderry Board of Supervisors recognized Officer Jared Zimmerman at Tuesday’s meeting following his receipt of the Lebanon County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #42 Officer of the Year Award.

Supervisors unanimously passed Resolution #10-20-23 declaring April 11, 2023, Officer Jared Zimmerman Day.

“Since the moment that I sat in on his interview, I knew we were really snagging a stellar gentleman who is very humble, very passionate about what he does,” said board chair Faith Bucks.

Bucks said that, in addition to his work as an officer, Zimmerman works as an EMT and teaches LEAD programs. Zimmerman was first sworn into the South Londonderry Township police in April 2017.

Following a public hearing, the board also granted the Rising Sun’s request for conditional use to demolish part of a historic structure.
