LPPD Thanks Our Community for their Support!
The Members of Lower Pottsgrove PD Thank the Community for their Support in these Difficult Times!
The Lower Pottsgrove Police Department expresses their sincere gratitude to our community partners who have been sop supportive over the past couple weeks in the midst of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The department has been blessed by the appreciation exhibited by all of our community, but especially thanks the following community partners for donating much needed supplies, such as disinfectants, masks, Tyvek suits, goggles, gloves and other services in support of our operations and in the interest of the health and safety of our staff: Pottsgrove School District custodial staff, Home Depot, AD Moyer Lumber & Hardware, Landis Supermarket, Dr. Allan Pyke of Pyke & Galletto and Associates, Anna & Gary Trout, Sanatoga Auto Body, and our local fire and EMS services.
These are trying times for all of us! Your donations and support have made it a little easier for us as we strive to provide services to the community. Prior to this pandemic, your local law enforcement was minimally stocked with such things as masks, goggles and Tyvek suits. These supplies, which were not a routine staple in our daily equipment needs, quickly became scarce and in high demand, making it difficult for us to stock adequate supplies to be ready to serve in situations where our staff may need to expose themselves to the virus in order to protect our citizens. Our expertise and ability to properly disinfect our facilities was limited to household remedies such as Lysol and disinfectant wipes. When faced with the need to ensure a healthy environment for essential services to be carried out, our school district custodial staff stepped up and aided us in sanitizing our facilities to bolster our efforts mitigate any threat to our police officers, administrative staff and their families that may be encountered in our work environment.
This agency is blessed with strong community partnerships, as well as devoted and professional staff serving us. Together, we are strong! Again, thank-you to our community and all of those who have helped us, may help us in the future or who just offer kind words of support to our staff. Be assured that whatever comes of this virus in coming days/weeks, The men and women of LPPD are here to serve you; we will continue to show a strong presence standing against criminal activity in our community.
