Professional Services Lieutenant
One of my favorite quotes is attributed to the Irish statesman, Edmund Burke, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil, is that good men do nothing." Simply stated, it is not enough to simply be good, we must all strive to actively go out and do good. If this appeals to you, and you want to make a difference, sign on with the Bensalem Township Police Department. Recruitment info can be found on this web site.
