Although it has been almost six months since Plymouth Township Police Officer Bradley Fox was shot and killed in the line of duty, township officials are still attending meetings of local municipal governments, thanking them for the help they provided during the tragic event.
On March 6, Plymouth Township Council Chairman Sheldon Simpson, Vice Chairwoman Lenora Bruno, Police Chief Joseph Lawrence and Township Manager Karen Weiss attended the Collegeville Borough meeting to publically thank Collegeville Borough, and Collegeville Police Chief Barton Bucher, for their department’s help.
“Without any questions or concerns, Collegeville sent their representatives down,“ Simpson said. “Your police officers were protecting our residents, keeping our township safe while we got through our tragedy.
According to Lawrence, almost every municipality in Montgomery County lent a hand following the shooting.
“Nearly every municipality including the Sheriff’s Office, Pennsylvania State Police and the Philadelphia Police Department sent help,” Lawrence said. “Plymouth has been attending, or trying to make everyone’s monthly meetings to say 'thank you'”
