Crowd Hears From County Experts On Sex Offenses

OFFENDER WORKSHOP SEEKS TO KEEP COMMUNITY IN THE KNOW – About 60 people arrived Wednesday night (Jan. 9, 2013) at the cafeteria in Lower Pottsgrove Elementary School, Buchert Rd., Pottstown, for a workshop on dealing with community sex offenders and protecting area residents from them. The event was endorsed by the police departments of Lower, Upper and West Pottsgrove and hosted by the Pottsgrove School District. It gave participants information about how Montgomery County law enforcers and social service agencies manage the sex offender population locally; offered advice on how parents might talk to their children about personal safety and encourage open discussions on sex and being approached by strangers; and described the effect of current and new laws that address sex offenses. Lower Pottsgrove Police Chief Michael Foltz, who proposed the workshop after the township was forced to remove a sex offender residency law from its books, said he was pleased by the turnout.
