Bethlehem and Lehigh U. police open joint Southside sub-station

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Bethlehem Police Department and Lehigh University Police Department have joined forces and opened a sub-station on South New Street between Third and Fourth streets. 

Officials say this sub-station will provide a physical police footprint in the busy south side and its officers will open new lines of communication.

Officer David Horvath of Bethlehem Police and Officer Charles Stokes of Lehigh University Police will be the two occupied at the sub-station at 324 South New Street.

"The sub-station is a cooperative effort between Bethlehem, Lehigh University and the community to address quality of life issues, provide a safe environment to enjoy oneself, and decrease crime."

In addition to the south side sub-station, Bethlehem police are also revising their north side patrol system. Effective this year, there will be a full-time north side officer who will patrol the downtown, historic Bethlehem, Sand Island, and neighborhoods in the center city area, according to officials.
