The Hon. Judge Daniel Maisano will moderate the first of a continuing series of public safety forums on Oct. 11 in the lower atrium of the Genesis Healthcare Building on 101 E. State Street in Kennett Square, beginning at 7 p.m.
The forums, which will subsequently be held at various locations in southern Chester County several times throughout the year, are being presented by the Kennett Township Police and the Kennett Square Police, and will be hosted by Kennett Township Police Chief Lydell Nolt and Kennett Square Police Lieutenant William Holdsworth.
Special FBI agent Charles Dayoub will serve as the guest speaker at the first forum.
“A relationship with the communities we serve is the foundation to the township and the borough police departments mission,” Nolt and Holdsworth wrote in a letter on Sept. 1. “Together, both departments provide public safety service to over 15,000 residents daily, and as such, these relationships are not only critical but vital in our desire to provide health and safety services.”
Lt. Holdsworth was promoted to Corporal in Kennett Square in 2001, and in July was promoted to Lieutenant and placed as the Officer-In-Charge of the department. Chief Nolt was named to his position in 2015, after serving in public safety service for over 15 years.
Light refreshments will be served. The general public is invited to ask questions at the forum, or submit them via e-mail prior to the event. Questions can be sent to For more information, call 610-388-2874, ext. 124.
