PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Police officers in Mount Lebanon are calling upon crafty members of the community to help increase their supply of cotton masks for street officers.

The Mount Lebanon Police Department posted to Facebook saying “You’ve no doubt seen the Governor’s recommendation to wear masks in public. The MPLD wants to comply while saving our limited supply of N95 masks for necessities.”

The department posted a picture showing 5 officers donning black cotton face masks.

The officers said they can also pick the masks up. They’re asking community members to email mlpdmgt@mtlebanon.or to schedule a pick up time.
