Penn State police to serve free refreshments to employees this summer

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State police officers across Pennsylvania will host events for Penn State employees this summer featuring a variety of refreshments, from free coffee to pizza to ice cream and more.

The events are opportunities for University Police and Public Safety to show gratitude to Penn State employees. The events also provide employees with opportunities to ask officers questions about police programs and services.

“University Police and Public Safety serves the entire Penn State community, including Penn State employees, and events like these are the perfect opportunity to show Penn State employees that we see them as an important part of the Penn State community,” said Charlie Noffsinger, assistant vice president of University Police and Public Safety. “We encourage all employees to come out for this event, not only for the refreshments, but also to meet and get to know our police officers who proudly serve Penn State.”

Police officers at the following campuses will host free events for employees this summer. Employees are encouraged to arrive early, as refreshments are available while supplies last.
