Public Safety Advisory Committee
In response to past incidents, resident concerns, and ideas discussed at a community safety meeting in March 2010, Concord Township leadership created a Public Safety Advisory Committee.
The group is comprised of residents:
- Fred Karcher
- Ray Shore
- Lou Girolami
- Libby Salvucci, Council liaison
Together this group of residents represents over 100 years of public safety experience. Council member Libby Salvucci serves as the liaison, with other Council members serving if needed. The Committee meets every other month to assist in organizing Town Watch programs, increasing awareness, communications, and developing long-term goals/initiatives. When necessary, recommendations will be made to Township Council.

The Public Safety Advisory Committee recommends signing up for important safety announcements. Concord Township specific notifications and announcements are sent out regularly by e-mail. Emergency alerts will be sent via email, voice phone call and text to phone. To sign up for this notification service, visit the Sign Up page of the township website.

OTHER SAFETY INFORMATION
Important Safety Tips
- Lock your cars.
- Ensure that all valuables are removed or out of sight.
- Keep your garage doors closed and your doors locked – even when you are home.
- Use outdoor lighting.
- Report suspicious activity/cars to the PSP non-emergency number.
Town Watch Programs
Safety-minded neighbors help create safe neighborhoods. Town Watch volunteers serve as trained “eyes and ears” for the police department. They routinely patrol their neighborhood streets, keeping alert for suspicious activity. Town Watch volunteers do not confront suspects; instead they are asked to immediately report the suspicious activity to local police or a base station via cellular phones or two-way radios.
Camp Cadet is a summer camp for boys and girls from Pennsylvania between the ages of twelve to fifteen. The camp is held at various locations throughout the State and staffed by Troopers, local police officers and many other volunteers. The goal of Camp Cadet is to introduce participants to the diverse criminal justice system and establish a positive relationship with law enforcement personnel.
Camp Cadet is open to all youth and is structured similar to training at the police academy. All participants who attend camp cadet are addressed as “Cadet” during the week. Cadets are required to participate in all scheduled events. The camp focuses on discipline, self-esteem, teamwork, drug and alcohol education, violence prevention and many other issues facing today’s youth. There is no cost associated to attend Camp Cadet. For more information, visit the Camp Cadet Summer Program page on the PA State Police website.
