Gale: Return Box On Arrest Records For Montco. Jobs

A box on the employment application for Montgomery County that asks about arrest history was recently removed.

County Commissioner Joe Gale says it’s clear, based on an incident that happened in late August, the box on job applications should be reinstated.

“It happened at the County Youth center. I can’t talk about too much on advice from our solicitor, but what I can say is that it happened between an employee and a young girl. This tells me that we need to do everything we can to keep employees and the public safe.”

Gale, a guest on WNPV’s AM Edition, has made a written request to have the box put back on county employment applications.
