Police protection sparks debate in Pine Grove Twp.

Supervisors exchange heated words

By Rob Wheary, Staff Writer •

PINE GROVE TOWNSHIP – Voices were raised between two Pine Grove Township supervisors as the subject of police protection in the township came up.
At the supervisors’ July 13 meeting, board chairman Bruce Kosack informed the public that the township had been having very preliminary discussions with Pine Grove Borough about responding to calls in the township in the future.
“The state police are worn very thin, and there are times where it could take about an hour or two for someone to respond to a call,” Kosack said. “There are some things that are going on in the township, including the township being a skirt point for drivers under the influence, in order to avoid detection.”
