Nine Newtown Township Police Officers Receive Commendations; Police Chief Rick Pasqualini to Retire | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

Keeping with its annual tradition each May, the township awarded commendations of merit to its police officers for perseverance, teamwork and leadership.

 

At the May 9 supervisors’ meeting, Police Chief Rick Pasqualini awarded the honors to nine officers for work over the last year.

 

  1. Det. Cpl. Daniel Bartle
  2. Sgt. Daniel Bell
  3. Lt. Jason Harris
  4. Det. Christopher Bush
  5. Cpl. Patrick Hardy
  6. Ofc. Frank Goodwin
  7. Ofc. Nicklaus Whitney
  8. Det. Joseph Camp

 

And newly-hired Officer Brandon Turpyn, who was sworn in last November, received a commendatory letter for his exceptional actions while responding to a report of a possible overdose last month [he saved a life by administering Narcan].

 

Police Chief to Retire

After 10 years heading the department, Newtown Township Police Chief Pasqualini will formally retire Jan. 1, 2019. “It’s been an honor and privilege to serve the men and women of the department,” the chief said. “Ten years went by rather quickly.”
