Protect & Defend 5K Honors Fallen Scranton Police Officer
It's almost time to put it to the pavement for the fourth annual "Protect & Defend 5K." The 5K run/walk in the Electric City honors fallen Scranton police officer John Wilding. The patrolman lost his life on the job in 2015. The money raised at the event benefits the Patrolman John J. Wilding Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Lackawanna College Police Academy. Wilding was an academy graduate who had also briefly served the Lackawanna College Public Safety Department.
