Lower Saucon Township Unused Medication Disposal Box
Residents who have expired or unused over-the-counter and prescription medications are able to discard those medications in a MedReturn drug collection unit, which is located in the front lobby of the Lower Saucon Police Department at 3700 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bethlehem.

Residents can place medications in the box anonymously, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There will be no charge to residents for this service and no requirement to provide personal information or identification when using the box.

Signs are posted on each box informing residents of the types of items that can be placed in the boxes and those that are not accepted. Items that are accepted are prescription and over-the-counter medications, samples, vitamins, prescription ointments, prescription patches and pet medications.

Items that are NOT accepted are syringes, needles, sharps or other sharp objects, medications from businesses and clinics, lotions or liquids, aerosol cans, inhalers, hydrogen peroxide and thermometers.

Lower Saucon Township D.A.R.E. Program
The Drug Abuse Resistance Education program, or D.A.R.E., provides education for school-aged children about the negative effect that drugs have on our minds, bodies, and communities.

Students also learn ways to resist confrontations and to resolve disputes without violence. D.A.R.E. Officer Kyle Haggerty has been teaching the program at the Saucon Valley Elementary School since 2012.

Lower Saucon Township DUI Program
DUI Coordinator Rob Winters utilizes our DUI Program as an additional tool to combat the terrible effects that drunk driving has on our community. The program is funded by Federal and State grants through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

An average of two events are scheduled per month and consist of DUI Checkpoints, Roving Patrols, and Cops in Shops. The events not only involve our department but also the Hellertown and Freemansburg Police Departments. The efforts of all the fine officers involved help to make the streets we travel much safer.

Lower Saucon Township K-9 Unit
Our dedicated K-9 Team, Officer Steve Kunigus and his partner Atos are an integral part of the Lower Saucon Township Police Department. Atos recently joined the department in May 2013 as the Township's third full-time service dog, replacing the retiring Brutus who served since 2008. We are confident that Atos will play an important role in numerous incidents including tracking, building and drug searches, vehicle stops, and community activities. His ability to perform under demanding situations with great skill and yet stay calm in the presence of children and the public will be a testament to the team’s initial and ongoing training.

The K-9 Team has greatly increased our officers' ability to locate illegal drugs in a variety of circumstances, and his tracking ability is beneficial in searches for individuals. Their presence has and will continue to provide a safer
atmosphere for officers and citizens at events such as the Motorcycle Hill Climb
and during routine patrol.

Lower Saucon Township Bicycle Patrol
You may have seen one or more of our Lower Saucon Bike Officers in action along your neighborhood streets, Officers Eric Marth, James Connell, and Kyle Bartholomew.

Since 2007, officers have logged over 4,977 miles in several Lower Saucon neighborhoods, and more recently our Rails-to-Trails, enabling our officers to routinely patrol some areas in a manner not as accessible with other police vehicles.

We have received positive comments and compliments on this specialized unit and the increased personal contact with our citizens that it has provided. We are confident that these fine officers will continue to enhance the service provided to the community by our department.
