A life-long resident of Bethlehem, Scott has a degree in criminology from DeSales and a Master's from St. Joe's.
As a Bethlehem cop, Scott rose through the ranks to become a Detective Sergeant. He served as a school resource officer at both Liberty High School and at East Hills Middle School. He was also the drug elimination officer at the Bethlehem Housing Authority.
Scott currently teaches at both DeSales and the Career Institute of Technology. He also volunteers at Northeast Ministries, Bethlehem Boys and Girls Club, Lehigh Valley Habitat for Humanity, Pennsylvania State Police Troop M Cadet Camp, City of Bethlehem Junior Police Academy and the City of Bethlehem Citizens Academy.
Scott vowed to bring a principle that is often missing from courtrooms manned by opportunistic politicians and lawyers - common sense.
Scott, a Democrat, will cross-file.
