Several times in 2019, MTPD captain Peter Feeney, Lieutenant Stephen Forman, and Officer Melissa Robison hosted various seminars for the community. Their events were well attended and everyone left with some extremely valuable information. The community has requested we continue with these educational seminars, which the department will do in 2020. In addition to the seminars, there were numerous ALICE training sessions held all throughout the township. From schools, doctors offices, counseling centers and the Lower Bucks homeless shelter, MTPD officers taught ALICE to employees, volunteers, residents, and students. ALICE is a response method to an active violent attacker/shooter, one that Neshaminy School District has recently adopted. Other seminars focused on fraud prevention for the elderly, internet safety and firearms safety classes.
Car Seat Install/ Car Fit
Officer Robison was certified by Safe Kids to install car seats and frequently participates in installations events. She is one of the only certified officers in Lower Bucks County available for this service. Car Fit is an educational program for senior drivers to check how well they “fit” their vehicle. They are provided resources on how to enhance their safety as drivers and increase their mobility.
Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and any caregivers of children are welcome to contact Officer Robison to get their car seat installed or checked. Please reach out via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-750-3876.
