The Numidia Community Park in Locust Township is temporarily closed to all access. The park is located at 72 Ringtown Mountain Road. Municipal crews are working on park clean up and contractors will be working on site preparations and installation of new playground equipment. While the work continues, no one is permitted to enter the park area. Violators could be subject to citations for trespassing.
Officers with the Locust Township Police Department will be out tonight conducting targeted underage drinking enforcement patrols and impaired driving enforcement. Do not let your Super Bowl Party celebrations impact the rest of your life. See the material below and via the link from our partners at drugfree.org.
Late last week we received some unexpected visitors at our station. The Gearhart family arrived with some wonderful hand drawn cards and a gift card for lunch for the officers. We are so blessed to work in such an amazing community. Barely a day goes by that residents and business owners don't reach to us to ask how we are doing? People we are interacting with in the community have been letting us know that they value our presence and service to the community.
