Police Officer to Remain at Dover Area Schools, Grove Says
YORK – Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) today announced the awarding of a $30,000 grant to Dover Borough from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The funding will be used for the continuation of a program which places a police officer in the building of the Dover Area School District.

“Enhancing school security is a constant effort not only for our districts across York County but also across the Commonwealth,” Grove said. “I know that officials in Dover worked very hard to create this program and I am proud to see its very important work continue because of this funding.”

The police officer in the Dover Area School District works for the Northern York County Regional Police Department. School police officers must complete additional training relating to interaction with children and teenagers in a school setting. The grant was among $3.9 million awarded to schools across the Commonwealth, to be used to hire police or school resource officers, or to continue existing programs.

“Our officer can be used in any school across the Dover district,” said Northern York County Regional Police Chief Mark Bentzel. “This program has been very successful in enhancing the safety and security for our local students.”
