Montgomery Locals Sept. 21, 2016
Police Chief Ernie Delp began serving Montgomery Borough almost four years ago. He always stops to visit with the children who live in the Robert Montgomery Apartments on Bower Street. He often ends up playing with them or reading to them. He noticed some of the children didn’t have bicycle helmets and he decided to do something about it. Chief Delp worked with Watsontown Police Chief Rodney Witherite to get helmets for the children who didn’t already have one and distributed them to the kids recently.
Chief Delp said that the sworn duty to protect and serve, includes serving through community education, and giving people what they need. Thanks to the efforts of Chief Delp, the children will now be much safer as they ride their bicycles around the hills that surround their apartment complex.
It’s amazing the way that learning a piece of good news can brighten your day. Sometimes it’s discouraging to turn on the news and see that so many things are going wrong in the world. But as far as I’m concerned, Chief Delp not only provided some practical safety equipment to more than a dozen children, but he made a lot of people smile when word of his kind act began to spread through town.
