Patrolman

John James Wilding

Scranton Police Department, Pennsylvania

End of Watch: Sunday, July 12, 2015

Patrolman John Wilding succumbed to injuries sustained the previous night at approximately

3:20 am while pursuing three juveniles who had stolen a vehicle.

The juveniles bailed out of the vehicle in the area of the 300 block of North Main Avenue with

several officers, including Patrolman Wilding, chasing them on foot. Patrolman Wilding jumped

over a small wall behind a restaurant at 301 North Main Avenue, not realizing that there was

a 15-foot drop on the other side. He suffered a serious head injury as the result of the fall.

He was transported to Geisinger Community Medical Center where he remained until

succumbing to his injuries early the next morning.

All three juveniles were arrested and charged as adults with robbery, terroristic threats,

and recklessly endangering another person.

Patrolman Wilding had served with the Scranton Police Department for one year. He is

survived by his wife and two children.
