The Amity Township Police Department, led by Police Chief Andrew Kensey, has raised funds for Safe Berks by selling “Support Your Local Police” signs. Chief Kensey presented a check to Safe Berks representative Francine M. Scoboria at the Amity Township meeting on Wed. Dec. 6.
Kensey said people can continue to support this Safe Berks fundraiser by purchasing signs for $20 at the Amity Township Building.
“Unfortunately, the majority of our violent crime is domestic violence, and it is pretty horrific,” said Kensey. “We work hand in hand with Safe Berks to help the victims, who are mainly women. That is why we chose Safe Berks as the recipient of these funds. If we can help one person with this donation, if we can provide one meal, it is worth it.”
“Working collaboratively with law enforcement, particularly through our Lethality Assessment Program, allows us to keep not only individuals safe, but the community safe,” said Mary Kay Bernosky, Esq., CEO of Safe Berks. “We appreciate the work that our officers do every day and know that they are committed to keeping their communities safe.”
