Thank you to the Zaleck family, who on November 13, 2019, generously donated the monetary equivalent of a DJI drone to the Manchester Township Police Department.
Retired Manchester Officer Sandy Drake and three year old Brian Drake presented the donation to the department on behalf of the Zaleck Family. Accepting the donation were Chief Lisa Parker and Lt. James Komsa, who oversees the department’s drone program. This important piece of equipment will be assigned to the Traffic Safety Unit to assist with the diagramming of serious and fatal motor vehicle accidents.
“This generous donation by the Zaleck family is greatly appreciated, as it provides our Traffic Safety officers with another tool that will allow them to better serve our residents and keep our community safe,” said Chief Parker.
The Manchester Police Department acquired its first drone in the Fall of 2018 which was fully funded by using money seized as a result of narcotic distribution investigations. A second drone was donated in 2018 to the police department by the Corporal Nicholas S. Ott Memorial Fund.
