On June 24th at the Fairview Township Board of Supervisor’s meeting, acting Police Chief Jason Loper presented Ronald Bartlebaugh Jr with a Meritorious Service Award for the assistance he provided to a Fairview Township Police Officer. At the end of April 2013, Ofc. Jason Lotier was dealing with an intoxicated and uncooperative female who was bleeding profusely due to punching a window. The woman, who was covered in blood, struck at and bit the officer. Bartlebaugh witnessed what was going on and stepped in to assist the officer in restraining the woman, which may have prevented further injury to her or the officer. Ofc. Lotier, who is pictured above with Bartlebaugh, was appreciative of his assistance and recommended him for the award.
