All Quiet On Pottsgrove Front Last Month

SANATOGA PA – The remaining days of the 2014-2015 academic year at Pottsgrove High School were all quiet and uneventful, Lower Pottsgrove Police Chief Michael Foltz noted.

School Resource Officer David Slothower told Foltz that during June (2015) he handled only one call at the high school, and that was a request for information.

There also was what Slothower described as a “juvenile disturbance” at Ringing Rocks Elementary School during the month, but it required no official action. There were no incidents to which Slothower responded at Lower Pottsgrove Elementary.

Slothower’s monthly review of activity in the school buildings was part of a report Foltz delivered July 6 to the township Board of Commissioners.

The Pottsgrove School District contracts with the department to provide resource officer support at its three schools located within Lower Pottsgrove. The officer, according to the township, is intended promote a security relationship between the police force and the district, helps the department deal with and advise on school safety issues, helps administer the high school’s student peer mediation program, and also deals with emergency issues as they arise.
