On May 17, 2021, Lt. U. Mark Freeman, NA Session 266, of the Upper Providence Township Police Department, was promoted to Chief taking the reign from Mark Toomey, NA Session 191. Mark Freeman has been with the Upper Providence Police Department since 1991. In a clear showing of his character, Mark’s swearing-in ceremony was attended by hundreds, which included many members of the Eastern PA Chapter of the FBINAA, other Law Enforcement, other first responders, civic leaders, social service organizations, friends, and family.
Both Marks are friends and mentors to many in the Southeastern PA law enforcement community. We wish each of them well in their respective futures.
