New parents can be under severe emotional or psychological distress. At times this can lead to poor decisions regarding their newborn infant. There have been instances where newborns have been abandoned in unsafe environments which causes injury or death to the child. We want everyone to know that the Spring Grove Police Department is a safe environment where a newborn can be relinquished.
