For over 70 years the Abington Township Police Department’s Auxiliary Police have helped support the department. They have donated thousands of hours of public service to our community. Their mission is to uphold the highest standards of professionalism while maintaining a continuous commitment to assist the Abington Township Police Department.
Recently they added two new members to their ranks, Officer Fran Stevenson and Officer Linda Slaweski!
Officer Stevenson (pictured left) has been a resident of Abington Township for over 35 years. She is a ten-year veteran of Manor Junior College Department of Public Safety, earning the title of Lieutenant, and works for a private agency offering executive protection and special investigations. Officer Stevenson is a certified state agent for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and has received numerous certifications in public safety. In her free time she teaches at an aftercare program at Cedartree Child Care and is currently earning a Child Development Associates degree. She chose to join the Auxiliary Police program because she cares about the safety and security of the community and believes in the value of public service.
Officer Slaweski (pictured right) is a 4th generation resident of Abington Township. Her family lives on the land once owned by her great-grandparents in a quaint brick home built by her grandfather. She has been married for 30 years and has two children, both in college. Officer Slaweski is employed at a nearby university as a public safety officer, does special investigations and executive protection for a private security company and is also a certified agent for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. She enjoys volunteering and working with her neighbors, who are the ones that make Abington Township such a great place to live.
Welcome to our Auxiliary Police and thank you for volunteering your time to help us make Abington Township a safe place live.
