PEQUEA TWP. – The Pequea Township Police Department had the opportunity to lead a contingency of officers from Lancaster County to assist Metropolitan Police in the Presidential Inauguration security detail. Early in 2020, they were contacted and invited to take part. The department reached out to surrounding agencies and a task force of about 30 officers from various Lancaster County police departments was formed. Officers from West & East Lampeter Townships, Strasburg, Quarryville, and Manor Township Police Departments took part. Prior to the detail, all officers were subject to extensive background checks and took part in specialized training. The officers were assigned to the motorcade/ parade route security detail. It was successfully completed without incident and officers arrived back in the area Thursday. The Department was proud to represent Lancaster County in a positive manner as they worked alongside thousands of police officers from across the nation.
