We would like to introduce our newest School Resource Officer, Keith Craig!
A past Chief’s Award recipient, Officer Craig is a nine-year veteran of the police department. During that time, he has demonstrated a commitment to this agency, both on and off duty, which is representative of the core values of this police department. Officer Craig has exemplified these values throughout his entire career. Officer Craig has organized and coordinated Dinner with Santa, Coffee with a Cop, and the Manchester Youth Police Academy.
Manchester Township Police Department School Recourse Officers are required to maintain a close relationship with the school administration, and staff, who provide important feedback as to the concerns of the students and parents. Officer Craig will also be a Juvenile Liaison to the Investigations Bureau and follow up with any investigations involving juveniles.
Officer Craig is no stranger to the Manchester Township School District. He is a lifelong Manchester Township resident and graduated from the Manchester Township High School in 2003. He is a LEAD instructor at the Ridgeway Elementary School and organizes the yearly LEAD graduation. Officer Craig also was influential in the development of the high school opiate awareness program, #NEO (Not Even Once), and has taught the program to hundreds of high school students.
Officer Craig already works closely with school officials as a School Safety team member. He attends safety drills and meetings throughout the year, and is the Municipal Alliance Chairman as well as the acting liaison between the public and the police department.
Please take a moment to congratulate Officer Craig and be sure to say hello to him in the hallways!
