Plainfield Rescinds Memo Banning School Patrols

A good night for Kristin Harvey
At a rancorous and crowded meeting of about one hundred people last night, Plainfield Township Supervisors unanimously backtracked on a controversial "internal" memo that banned any police presence at Wind Gap Middle School. This March 28 memo, which was adopted and signed behind closed doors, allowed police at the school only during bus times, "and only if an officer is available," or "if County 911 calls them and it is an emergency." Any police officer who failed to comply could be suspended or dismissed. After getting an earful from angry parents, Supervisors unanimously reversed course and rescinded the memo, blaming the whole thing on miscommunication. But it's also clear that this Board, in addition to micromanaging the police, have very little understanding of the Sunshine Act.

Although scheduled for the Municipal Building, the meeting had to be moved to the Plainfield Township volunteer Fire Company as the crowd poured into the building.

A good night for Superintendent  Bill Haberl, too
Attorney and Wind Gap Middle School mother Kristin Harvey Kunsman took responsibility for leaking the memo to the press, claiming that Supervisors "deliberately decided to take this action and hide it from our eyes".

Supervisors were initially resentful that this memo had been leaked to the public. "We didn't want to do our dirty laundry in public," complained Chairman Randy Heard, who called the controversial directive a personnel matter.

Heard is incorrect. It is actually a policy decision to ban police patrols at Wind Gap Middle School, not a personnel matter. Under the Sunshine Act, Supervisors may meet in secrecy to discuss a specific employee, but this memo was no discussion of a specific staffer. Even if this was a personnel matter, any official action would have to be in an open meeting. Supervisors took official action by signing that memo in secret instead of during an open meeting. Their actions violated the Sunshine Act.

To make matters worse, a Township staffer took it upon herself to remove two months of meetings in which a police presence at the school was discussed. "That can be resolved," promised Supervisor Jane Mellert.

A bad night for Chairman Randy Heard 
Supervisors then tried to explain that routine patrols and walk throughs at the school were still permitted, drawing loud protests from numerous members of the audience who had copies of the memo.

"I wrote it, so don't tell me about it, lady! OK?" shouted Supervisor Glenn Borger to an unidentified person in the audience.

At another point, Supervisors contended that police officers are under a directive to stay away from certain areas within the Township. But they refused to say where.

"That's none of your business!" snapped Supervisor Borger.

Steve Hurni seeks divine guidance?
Supervisors use GPS devices on police cruisers to keep track of police movements, and Borger complained that cruisers have spent one to two hours at the school on 54 separate occasions.

Pen Argyl Area School District Superintendent William Haberl explained why. On one occasion, a teacher had a heart attack. On another, a student attempted suicide. He added that sometimes, officers eat lunch with students or do paperwork. Chief Dean Ceraul pointed out that a lockdown can take 1 1/2 hours.

"Just let the police do their job," stated an unidentified man seated next to Chief Ceraul. "I think you know you made a mistake. You just have to admit you made a mistake."

Exasperated, a frustrated Glenn Borger moved to rescind the memo that he himself had penned, and his motion was quickly seconded by Supervisor William Schmauder. But while that motion lay on the table, Supervisor Jane Mellert wanted to go into executive session (behind closed doors), and Chairman Heard agreed.

In addition to violating Robert's Rules of Order, Mellert's Motion violated the Snshine Act because she failed to state why she wanted an executive session/. So I entered an objection, which is permitted by the Act by anyone for a perceived violation. Mellert first stated it was to discuss litigation, but was unable to state any identifiable complaint. She then stated it was a personnel matter, but was unable to identify any specific person to be discussed.

Solicitor David Backenstoe resolved the objection by alone meeting with Mellert while the rest of the Board waited.

Once she returned, the Board voted unanimously to rescind a memo that itself was a violation of the Sunshine Act.

So Plainfield Township has a supervisor that he promised Honesty and Integrity will be brought back to the board if he was elected.We have another one who was fired from another municipality and now she tries to blame Joyce for taking the notes off the web site. And if she stops to quick we will need a doctor to extract the other ones head from her you know what. So that leaves the chairman who is on a short leash, and the last one looks like he was scared to death of the people.Stay on top of this people it's your township.Thanks Kristen and Great coverage Bernie.

Embarassing times for the township. They need help and someone to guide them..that is very evident. You get what you pay for and they have been doing it on the cheap for decades. Admit you have no idea how to govern and hire a consultant at the very least to assess the damage and bring forth some options on how to deal with the lack of business acumen. Power to the people.

Township board members are not too good at keeping things under their own hats when it pertains to their own personnel problems either. Worst kept secret in the Slate Belt area is that their police force is out of their control. This was a PR coup for their police chief and things will only deteriorate more from this point onward. It doesn't get any messier than this. Tail wagging this dog!

Won't Plainfield be turned into a sub-station under regionalization of Slate Belt police forces, thus losing personelle?

They have refused so far to be part of a regional group. Guess who wants no part of that?

Bernie O'Hare said...

I would imagine that would be the police officers themselves, who raise some concerns that are legitimate and some that are not. It's the same in Nazareth.

But unknowingly, they make the case for regionalization. It makes more sense for them to be under the control of professionals who actually know something about public safety, as opposed to the Glenn Borgers of this world.

Regarding the criticism about the sunshine act, I'm no all knowing, but wasn't the memo a reinforcement of the policy that was debated publically back in August, and not followed by the employee?
How does reinforcing a publically debated policy to an employee who was not following it violate the sunshine act?

Bernie O'Hare said...

Your assessment of your own understanding of the Sunshine Act is accurate. This "internal" memo established a policy. It reflects an official action,. It was decided in secret and not during an open meeting. Moreover, it is not a personnel matter. The Board acted in secrecy instead of transparently. In fact, the Board was all too willing to go into an executive session again last night, without bothering to state why. And in the middle of a motion.

It is clear to me that your Board does not understand or follow the Sunshine Act, and perhaps that is one reason why there is so much miscommunication.

There was no determination in August to ban police from schools. That's what the internal memo does. t is an official action by all five members of the Bard, and violates the Sunshine Act.

Stop feeling sorry for yourself and start following the law.

It will never happen. The people that sit on these Boards, School Boards, County Council's are all idiots and losers in their personal and work lives. If they were satisfied in those lives, they would have no time for sitting on a Board. The best thing Plainfield can do to keep these cooks from the kitchen is to hire a full time professional MANAGER to run the place.

I don't think township supervisors should be deciding where police officers should or should not be on patrol. they are not professionals. I cover two other townships and can't think of any twnshp comm'r or supervisor who would get involved in something like that.

I heard or read nothing that suggests to me that police officer are acting inappropriately. But if they are, and the Chief is unwilling to take remedial action, the remedy is to fire him. It is also time to consider police regionalization as a way to reduce costs while promoting a more efficient force. Finally, supervisors need to be much more transparent. I will try not to draw conclusions about them from only one meeting, but they certainly did not come off as a very good board. I know some of them and was very disappointed in them.

The board is looking for a reason..any reason..to fire the chief of police and others for personnel issues. This was not the way to do it, obviously and now they have empowered the chief even more and he has public opinion on his side. Talk about screwing things up..this board is really inept.

Bernie O'Hare said...

I believe the chief serves at their pleasure and they can replace him if he is playing power games. But supervisors lack the professional expertise to dictate where police may or may not conduct patrols, even secretly.

For whatever reason..the board does not have the guts for the job at hand or to do what is legally required of them. They are way out of line dictating police patrols and this only reinforces the fact that they have no clue how to conduct themselves in a professional manner and within the laws of the State of Pa. They have embarassed themselves and the people they claim to represent.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Glenn Borger's behavior at the meeting was inappropriate, to be sure. Franly, I was impressed by Schmauder, who immedately seconded Borger's motion. He sat there and listened, and immediately voted to correct a mistake. Heard was far too defensive, although I think he seems like a basically good guy. Jane Mellert was a big disappointment.

I think your right the boards has changed since Hurni and Mellert have come on the board and Borger appears as a crazy mountain man that cold snap at anytime , Schmauder seams to care and does not seem to be a follower. Heard seems like He's like Scmauder but a bit nervous to step out from the other board members views . Hurni well let's just say he is so far up one of his fellow supervisors rear that if she farts there may be a little Hurni gerbil that pops out of her rear .

Anyone else remember this? And we want these guys roaming our school halls. No one was ever held responsible for this except the taxpayer of Plainfield Township.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Let me get this straight. Because one cop is a pedophile, does that mean that children should be forced to steer clear of all police officers? By that reasoning, kids should not be going to school at all because, after all, every now and then there is a teacher who turns out to be a pedophile. You should keep them out of church, not let them play sports or basically do anything.

Don't be silly.

Anonymous said...

No, not at all. I trust our police, but they were all hired by the same guy who failed us with officer young. Officer young never got the proper background check by chief ceraul. Why? Young was never qualified to be a cop. THAT 2007 board of Cerauls buddies never thought to call him on the table for it. Your friends can only help you for so long. Eventually they die off, get fired or don't get re-elected. Back scratching at the cost of the peoples tax $ has ended in Plainfield Township.

Bernie O'Hare said...

As I'v noted several times, if the Chief is exceeding his authority and involved in power plays with Supervisors, their remedy is to fire him or not renew his contract. But they should not inject themselves into matters they know nothing about. I personally don't think Glenn Borger or any other Supervisor is qualified to make public safety decisions. Another thing Supervisors should consider more seriously is regionalization of police forces.

These parents are being used as pawns by the chief and former supervisor as they try to hold on to the last shred of their power and status in the township. This isn't high school anymore boys, this is real life, time to grow up. Has any of these parents called a supervisor and talked directly with them before they called them idiots and losers? I bet not. They've been given the spin, especially the one put on over this internal memo, and are falling for it hook, line and sinker. In due time the truth will come out and the parents will see the light.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Just sitting there, I could tell there was more than met the eye. I believe you when you claim there is a power stuggle. But I still have two points. 1. That memo was insane. 2. They need to follow the Sunshine Act.

The bigger story is obviously the power struggle, and the Chief has to recognize that he is accountable to Supervisors. But make him accountable, not individual officers.

Anonymous said...

Re-read the INTERNAL memo. Do you think the Chief was verbally told the intent over and over and he just didn't listen? The memo comes out, poorly written, i agree, and it's spun. Police patrol outsides of buildings and property. In putting themselves in the buildings they can be potentially several long hallways filled with kids if an emergency call comes in. That is several minutes delay in response to a medical, burglary, fire or accident response. If they are outside patrolling the parking lot from their car they are immediately available to respond to an emergency. The SROs primary responsibility was INSIDE the school and he was not a primary responder. Final point, an intruder to the building MUST come in from the OUTSIDE!

Bernie O'Hare said...

Let me repeat that the memo, which should not have been internal bc it reflected an official action, is on its face insane. It has to be the nuttiest thing I've seen a township government do in recent years. I've read it several times.

If there is a problem with the Chief, remove him and get someone else. That is the remedy.

Anonymous said...

Emergency response time was the Chief's trump card to keep a bloated force. Emergency response time is being ignored by the chief today to try to keep his power.
Patrol the lot, do reports in the lot but no need to walk the halls. That is the schools jurisdiction.
An SRO doesn't get radio calls from county about shootings.
A municipal officer having lunch with the kids gets a call about a shooting and tell me how the school kids finish their day learning.
As referenced in an earlier Express article, a NJ school has recognized this and asked police to no longer patrol the halls. They recognized their responsibility.

I read the memo again and here is what I see. Tell me if you see it too.
Taken word for word from the memo; Chief Ceraul “was instructed to only have an officer at the Wind Gap Middle School during bus times and only if an officer was available. The only other times an officer should be at the WGMS is if county 911 calls them and it is an emergency.”
Then, “these instructions will be obeyed by the Chief and all officers.”
The single argument is the word “only”. Is this a case of the Clinton “It depends on what the definition of 'is' is.”

Anonymous said...

The words of the instructions are on paper in the August minutes.
“The Board is not talking about taking Officer Long away. They would still want him to be around when students are dropped off and picked up at the busses at the school.”
“Motion was made by Vice-Chairman, Glenn Borger and seconded by Steve Hurni to remove the School Resource Officer’s position effective tonight and if there is an emergency at the school, they still have the option to call for help”
“The school still has the ability to call an officer when needed.”
I’d like to hear the recorded proceedings before I jumped to the conclusion that this is a sunshine law violation. Or did someone delete those too? Rather convenient the specific minutes got deleted, don’t you think? Who directed the secretary to remove them, a supervisor or a power player?

Anonymous said...

If removing 40 hrs of free police coverage from the school was the intent and the chief thumbed his nose at them and put police, including himself in the school a reported 20+ hours, then the memo is just a reinforcement that the supervisors are serious when they say the chief works for them, and if the residents of Plainfield Township don’t like the way they manage the chief, they can speak by voting each supervisor out.

Seems to me based on the above, the supervisors are actually gutless, not courageous in rescinding the internal memo. Stand on your convictions (no pun intended), that’s what the Plainfield residents (NOT the Wind Gap or Pen Argyl residents) elected you to do.

You guys don't get it. Nothing in those 8/23 minutes authorized that memo. If it was authorized, why rescind it?

Anonymous said...

I respectfully disagree. The memo doesn’t need to be authorized in public session according to the Sunshine Acts own words.
65 Pa.C.S.A. § 708. Executive sessions
a) Purpose. An agency may hold an executive session for one or more of the following reasons:
(1) To discuss any matter involving the employment, appointment, termination of employment, terms and conditions of employment, evaluation of performance, promotion or disciplining of any specific prospective public officer or employee or current public officer or employee employed or appointed by the agency, or former public officer or employee, provided, however, that the individual employees or appointees whose rights could be adversely affected may request, in writing, that the matter or matters be discussed at an open meeting…

The supervisors were obviously handling a disciplinary decision to enforce (not decide) a policy that was decided in an open meeting. This easily qualifies to be done in Executive Session. “Terms and conditions of employment”, “disciplining of any specific prospective public officer or employee”, etc. No Sunshine Law violation. You can’t make public motion and discussion on discipline matters unless the subject of those matters expressly requests it

Bernie O'Hare said...

They obviously were not. They enacted a policy in secret and contemplated no disciplinary action against any employee. If the executive session were for personnel, as you claim, the personnel affected had to be notified and would have a right to be present and would even have a right to have it in the open. You do not know what you're talking about, but think you do, and that is how these problems arise.

Anonymous said...

What policy was enacted in private? they voted to not keep paying for an officer in the school except for bus duty and emergency. Supervisors set budget and determine how many hours to fund for police. Read past minutes of budget setting and the debate that went on.

So then, how do you enforce a policy that was voted on in public meeting? Just keep talking about it in the next public meeting? I'm serious, how does it get done except to have the chief sign a paper that he understands his bosses August instruction so that he can be held accountable? I'm willing to learn here. Enlighten me. Just fire him, is that what you would do?

Bernie O'Hare said...

The policy enacted in private was to completely ban a police presence at a school except for busing and emergencies, and only then if called in by 911. It is the nuttiest thing you could have done, and the fact that you don't see that is an indication that some supervisors are completely clueless.
