Turkey Hill taking steps to enhance security at Pa. stores

EAST HEMPFIELD TWP., Pa. - One of the region's biggest convenience store chains is taking steps to enhance safety for its customers and employees.

Turkey Hill Minit Markets announced Tuesday that it has implemented a number of security-related measures, including increasing the lighting outside its stores and changing window signage to make store exteriors more visible from the inside.

"Our primary focus is on doing everything we can to create safe, convenient environments that the individuals and families we serve can count on 24/7 for the fuel, food and beverage items, and other merchandise they need," said Matt Dorgan, division asset protection manager for Turkey Hill.

The Lancaster County-based company said it is also providing ongoing security training for its employees and deploying various behavioral and technology-based tools, all in an effort to deter, prevent, and detect crime and illicit activity in and around its stores.

"Obviously, we are limited in how much detail we can share," Dorgan said "but as a result of these efforts, law enforcement has increased apprehensions and we've been able to collect information that folds right back into more-effective prevention."

Turkey Hill operates 260 stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana, including dozens of locations in Berks County and the Lehigh Valley.
