This police force is know through the valley as a chicken crap operation. All they do is sit on Rt 378 and watch for the college kids leaving Starters Pub.
If this new guy is smart he will not limit his career to this place. Its a big world out there and don't let this place ruin your chances of becoming a professional.
No one in the community knows the chief. Maybe its because he hides and he may be asked to do something.
As far as ratting out...lol.... it will come in time. Becareful of your coworkers they will hurt you more than the drug dealer and felon.
Officer Eric: Use this place to build your resume then leave.
I've met quite a few officers, they are very professional, i guess you can't please everyone.

I'm shocked at what some people have to say. The officers i dealt with worked very hard for me and arrested a person who burglarized my home.I got all of my family jewelery back, god bless them all.

It doesn't matter what police department it is, someone on here would be complaining about something.

As a LS resident, I've called the police, and they are professional, prompt, and the police I've dealt with, appeared to be fit. So, I don't know what everyone else is complaining about.

My experience has been on the other end of the Spectrum. My experiece has left me with the impression that if you sleep with the right People in Lower Saucon (literally and figuratively), you can get away with anything. I have been left with the impression that being chummy with the Police has benifits.My experience has let me to believe that this is the Truth.

I have several documented request for reports from the Police that have been ignored.
Year ago I had an Officer show up at my house, unannounced, When I approached the Patrol Car, in my drive, he was behaving, in my opinion, in a rather queer manner. When I asked him for the reason for his visit, he gave a lame excuse that made no sense, but tried to present his visit as official. I requested an acknowledgement that his visit was official but my request were ignored.

My rural mailbox was taken off it's post and laid on the ground to Harass
me. I was told by the mail carrier that the Lower Saucon Police assisted in the Act. I have made several DOCUMENTED request over the years for a report of the harassment from them and the request have been ignore. I was told that the act of taking down my mailbox was a Federal Crime. It was done to Harass me.

I have a Paper Trail on my experience with the Lower Saucon Police . It is filled with several documented request for reports that they have ignored. Many of these request have to do with what I believe is their adding and abetting Harassment. These are a few incidences where my experience with them hasn't given me the belief that their approach to Law Enforcement is Objective.
I have spoken to many Lower Saucon Residence who don't have Faith that the Police show Objectivity when doing their job. The Old Boy Network appears to be alive and well.

This guy is no darn good. He looks like an old wrinkled face prune. He is trouble. Just asked all those fellow classmates from SVHS. Plus he likes to tattle on his co workers.

If the police department is sooo bad, where are the complaints from the citizens? Why is the crime rate so low? They must be doing something right.....
The crime rate is so low because the only stink in that town comes from the over weight losers that patrol it. They have nothing better to do than steak out The Pub, allow Se Wy Co to get robbed, and hope for the next DUI as some college kid drives home from Montana West. Please....

Hey, fan Center Valley, for your information you live in Upper Saucon Township not Lower Saucon Twp. Sorry for the bad news!
Before your trash the police remember you may need them someday and not all police are inept or bad seeds, for every bad there are 5 good. But your are right Upper Saucon Police are the BEST!

As a resident of Lower Saucon for 24 years my experience with the police is both good and bad. A majority of the time but just like in people you meet in every day life Lower Saucon has had power hungry cops and at times crooked cops. A majority of the current officers, except 2, are very professional.
