The Christiana Borough Police Department started patrolling Atglen in mid-April and already 65 citations have been issued in that neighboring borough.
Police Department Chief Richard Finfrock reported during a council meeting Tuesday, May 7, that things have been going well in the new territory as officers get to know the area.
“It’s going good, they’ve been able to stop and talk to the residents. We are patrolling every street we can get into,” Finfrock said. “We cruise through to make sure everything is OK, check the parks and the two playgrounds they have.”
Related to the Police Department, a resolution was approved to hire Courteney A DeLaney and John Hall as the borough’s newest part-time officers.
“Both have been vetted by the chief and by the safety committee. We know who they are and we think they would make good police officers,” Council President Robin Coffroth said.
In another matter, council members discussed the need to replace some of the banners in downtown Christiana that have the slogan, “Freedom Began Here,” referencing the 1851 Christiana Resistance.
