District Attorney Rewards Law Enforcement in their Effort to Drive Drugs Out of Schuylkill County

On Wednesday, Schuylkill County District Attorney rewarded law enforcement in their efforts to drive drugs out of Schuylkill County.

District Attorney Holman was pleased to deliver 3 checks to the following police departments totaling $4,047.04.

  • Butler Township - $1,446,20
  • Shenandoah - $2,077.72
  • Tamaqua - $523.12

Holman says these departments have worked diligently to rid our communities of drug dealers and users.  These fine officers not only work their regular hours for their own department but have logged additional hours of overtime for the Schuylkill County Drug Task Force in a  collaborative effort to combat the way on drugs.

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.  The District Attorney's office appreciates the funding and will continue to distribute monies to police departments working with the drug task force.

To report any drug activity, you can call the Schuylkill County District Attorney's Hotline at 1-800 414-1406.  Any tips provided will remain confidential.
