POTTSTOWN, PA — Borough residents will soon see several new faces in Pottstown Police Department uniforms after the largest class of officers in the history of the department started this past week.
On Jan. 27, seven men began a year-long probationary period with the department, Capt. Robert Thomas said.
Not only is this the largest class of new members, the addition means the department will be running at full complement.
“Our full force is 46 officers,” Thomas said. They represent 15 percent of the department and Thomas said that is a substantial addition.
