LIMERICK TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT RECOGNIZES LOCAL RESIDENT AND BUSINESS OWNER FOR A DONATION OF $10,000 TOWARDS A NEW POLICE K-9 UNIT

At a public meeting of the Limerick Township Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, during budget discussions, Chief R. Brian Skelton spoke of the importance of the K-9 Unit which was established in 1990 by the generosity of donors in the community.  For three decades, K-9 Units have provided safety and security to our community, region, and its police officers.  Since 2018, Limerick Township has maintained two K-9 Units, when Police K-9 Rambo was added to Limerick’s police force.  It was then that Chief Skelton noted that Police K-9 Flynn will be retiring at the end of the year after nine years of service and inquired about a possible path for his replacement.  

Limerick business owner and resident, Michael J. McCloskey, III, was in attendance and spoke of his support for public safety and offered a $10,000 donation to offset the projected $17,000 cost. McCloskey delivered a check to the Limerick Township Police Department the following day. 

Mike McCloskey was publicly recognized for his tremendous generosity and support to the community at the following public meeting of the Limerick Township Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, October 15, 2019.
