Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session

Subject: Designation of State Route 309 and Passer Road in Upper Saucon Township, Lehigh County, as Officer David M. Petzold Memorial Highway
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that would designate a section of State Route 309 and Passer Road in Upper Saucon Township, Lehigh County, as the Officer David M. Petzold Memorial Highway.

Officer David M. Petzold became an Upper Saucon Township Police Officer in October 1996. He served as a patrol officer for the Upper Saucon community and became Upper Saucon's first detective in 2001. While assigned as a detective, Officer Petzold earned a bachelor of arts degree with a major in criminal justice from DeSales University. In May 2005, Officer Petzold joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation then returned to the Upper Saucon Township Police Department in April of the next year.

In the early morning hours of November 9, 2006, Officer Petzold was struck and killed by oncoming traffic as he removed a deer causing a traffic hazard on Route 309. Officer Petzold left behind a wife, two daughters and a son. He died as he lived, trying to protect and serve the community.

Please join me in supporting this legislation. If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Lori Nissly at (717) 783-1673 or lnissly@pahousegop.com.
