School Liaison Officer

One officer of the department has been assigned the responsibility of serving as School Liaison to the Lampeter-Strasburg School District. Establishing an ongoing rapport with members of the school community, both students and faculty alike, creates a positive impact on police-school-community relations. Our Police Liaison Officer randomly visits schools on a drop-in basis, conducts assemblies and classroom presentations, attends special school functions and activities occurring throughout the school year, and generally remains in contact with school staff and administrators. Both students and faculty have welcomed our School Liaison Officer into their community. Additionally, the Police Department also provides full service policing and assistance to the Willow Street Lancaster County Career & Technology Center, a major school campus located within our Township. West Lampeter Township Police Chief James Walsh is Chairman of the Willow Street Lancaster County Career & Technology Center Police Committee, offering direct assistance and guidance with their law enforcement programs.
