The Springfield Rotary Club welcomed members of the Springfield Township Police Department to share information on their new program, COPS. The new program replaces the DARE program in the Springfield Township School District. The new program gives better flexibility for the police officer instructors to gear their programs towards current concerns affecting the children, for example cyber bullying, Facebook, texting, and peer pressure. The Springfield Rotary Club presented a check for $2,000 to help fund the new program. Pictured Left to Right, Rotary President Linda Silva, Chief Hummel and Lt. Pitkow.
