Retired Chief Foltz Honored Monday by Lower Pottsgrove

SANATOGA PA – He’s a corporate security executive now, and happily so, former Lower Pottsgrove Police Chief Michael Foltz told friends, family members and colleagues Monday night (Oct. 5, 2020) at The Sunnybrook Ballroom, where he was honored by the township Board of Commissioners and its police department. Despite his retirement from active policing, though, he admits law enforcement still runs through his blood.

Board members (at top with Foltz in center) used the familiar forum of their meeting, and the spaciousness of Sunnybrook to ensure proper social distancing, in celebrating the chief’s more than 30 years of service and leadership to the department.

Several officers and sergeants with whom Foltz served came during their off-duty hours to shake hands and again offer best wishes. Commissioners roundly praised him and the “vision,” as two mentioned, that he brought to the force.

So, too, did the Montgomery County Association of Police Chiefs, which also presented Foltz with a retirement award. Association President and Horsham Police Chief William Daly talked about the depth of detail and research Foltz carried into association meetings, and particularly those dealing with officer education and training … well before those became current topics.
