John Mack - Newtown Supervisor
Newtown Township Police Need to Diversify

At the January 13, 2021, Newtown Board of Supervisors meeting township resident Frank McCarron made a case for increased diversity in the Newtown Police Department (NTPD). Currently, all 29 or so NTPD police officers are white. Mr. McCarron suggested that all 3 officers that are planned to be hired in 2021 be officers of color.

The following audio clip from the Zoom meeting includes his comments and Chief John Hearn's response when asked by Supervisor David Oxley to respond.
