On Wednesday, the Schuylkill County District Attorney's Office distributed checks to county police departments that have worked diligently to rid their communities of drug dealers and users.

The following Police Departments received checks of the amount listed:

  • Hegins Township - $99.69
  • Kline Township - $103.12
  • Pine Grove - $90.00
  • Shenandoah - $1,455.85
  • St. Clair - $96.00
  • Tamaqua - $154.80
Total amount distributed:  $1,999.46

According to the District Attorney's office, the officers not only work their regular hours for their own departments but have logged additional hours of overtime for the Schuylkill County Drug Task Force.  The District Attorney's office is able to remit well-earned dollars to these officers as a result of an annual stipend from the Attorney General's Office.

Anyone who has a tip on drug user or dealing in their community can contact the Schuylkill County District Attorney's Drug Hotline at 1-800-414-1406.  All tips provided remain confidential.
