Troop M officers enjoy coffee with Bath community members

The Sept. 26 Coffee with the Cops event was a hit in Bath. It was well attended by both residents and elected officials. Several Pennsylvania State Police troopers and lieutenants from Troop M, Bethlehem, were present to field questions from residents.

Trooper Mark Allen, the Pennsylvania State Police community services officer, said he was delighted to learn Bath officials are exploring the development of a town watch group.

Allen has experience engaging community watch efforts with many local municipalities. He was very involved with Coplay’s town watch, which received seven national awards from the National Association of Town Watch for its work.

Mayor Fiorella Reginelli-Mirabito expressed her delight with the early success of the transition to Pennsylvania State Police services.

“I, we, in Bath are so happy with the [Pennsylvania] State Police. This was a tough decision but needed to be done,” she said.
