Council: Resource officer is a great idea, but who will pay for it?

April 9, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — During their monthly meeting Monday, several of the members of Punxsutawney Borough Council said they supported the idea of a police resource officer at Punxsutawney Area High School, but asked who is going to pay for it.

“There’s a need for a resource officer to assist with the prevention of crime at the high school,” said Georgette Pennington, a concerned parent who, last month, discussed her concerns with the Punxsutawney Area School Board.

Pennington said a police resource officer would help expand crime prevention with students and in the community, as well.
