p-ville“Scenes seen” | along the main street in Schuykill Haven (population: 5,138) on Tuesday. The main street is lined with attractive store fronts and welcoming parking meters. While meeting in one of the businesses there, a police officer stuck his head in the door to ask, “Anyone parked at the meters?”

Discovered the police officers actually have assignments that include “monitoring the meters” — but they do that in the nicest manner. The eight-person police department has an “ongoing commitment to providing professional community oriented police services.”
