Police and Fire Department personnel often find themselves interacting with the public, but not always in relaxed circumstances. Usually, police officers and fire fighters are responding to one crisis or another on what often amounts to the worst day of someone’s life.
On Sept. 9, the circumstances were different for Scott Township Public Safety Day at the lower level of Scott Park. There were free hot dogs, pizza and soft drinks, and the township encouraged citizens to show up and visit with police and firemen to learn more about what they do.
“It’s nice for the people that we serve to come out and see us in a different perspective, just talking and chatting and having a nice time,” said Scott Township Police Chief Matthew Podsiadly.
