|Support for the
Pennsylvania State Police Historical, Educational, and Memorial Center is growing steadily
in the continued development of this non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that was founded
Formal operations began in January of 1999 and now after several years, the H.E.M.C. has
advanced to a fully operational office involved in planning, marketing, and fundraising,
along with site, building and exhibit designs.
State troopers, retired and active duty, and civilian personnel have
supported early operations through fundraising activities such as the purchase of the
polished black granite Memorial bricks, Commemorative Millennium Badges, PSP Wearables and
After numerous sites for the
location of the museum were considered, a site for the future PSP-HEMC building has been
acquired. In the year 2000 Hershey Trust agreed to sell 10.38
acres of land adjacent to the existing State Police Academy. The site development
plans are underway. An application has been filed with Derry Township and was approved, to
rezone this parcel to an Economic Development Zoning District, which will be consistent
with Derry Township's Comprehensive Plan.
The Official PSP-HEMC web Site has also been established,
which offers on-line information about the Pennsylvania
State Police Historical, Educational and Memorial Center to the public.
These factors indicate how the concept of a PSP-HEMC is
alive and well. The Pennsylvania State Police Historical, Educational and Memorial
Center will join other worthwhile attractions in the Hershey, Greater Harrisburg, and
Susquehanna Valley area.
