Police offices at the municipal building
SANATOGA PA – Fifteen candidates for a future job as a Lower Pottsgrove Township police officer were interviewed Saturday (June 8, 2013) during their last round of qualification for the position, Chief Michael Foltz reported to the Board of Commissioners.
All have already successfully survived an initial screening, a first written exam, a first-round winnowing from a pack of 79 applicants down to the remaining 15, and a delayed physical agility test administered during May. A second exam and interviews, which were scheduled June 8 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., was intended to cull the list even further.
From among those left – usually the top five candidates – the township Civil Service Commission will create a list of those Foltz can re-interview and choose one to fill a vacancy when it occurs. The commission consists of township residents appointed by commissioners.
