JACKSON TWP. — Jackson Township accepted the resignation of part-time police officer Gabe Paduck and hired part-time officer Shawn Brown at the supervisors meeting Tuesday.

The supervisors also renewed their Emergency Response Agreement with the State Correctional Institution-Dallas. This agreement allows the state prison to use the township building as a command center in the case of an emergency.

Also, Supervisor Allen Fox assured residents the township had beefed up security and instituted new safety policies for township meetings in light of last month’s shooting incident in Ross Township in Monroe County, where three people were killed at a public meeting.

Resident Ed Chesnovitch said he still felt the public was being kept in the dark about crime in the township.

“I’ve talked to police. They say things happen and we’re not aware of it,” he said.

Fox said everything the police reported to the supervisors was being posted on the township website.

The next board meeting will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 7.
