PUNXSUTAWNEY – The Punxsutawney Borough Police Department received praise from the council during this week’s meeting, and the mayor shared that a local company had made a significant donation to the department.

After reading the police summary, councilor Larry Chenoga asked to make a brief statement about police chief Matt Conrad.

“Boss, I have to tell you a great job. Their numbers look fantastic. I just wanted to bring it up and say ‘thank you’ to your face, so you know I’m paying attention, “said Chenoga, noting that the police department did” a tremendous job and you should be grateful for that, because you are their leader. “

During Mayor Richard Alexander’s report, he said the department received a gracious donation from a local company that wants to remain anonymous.

“I am pleased to announce, through the gracious donation from a local company, that we can and are in the process of purchasing printers on board for all police cars,” said Alexander.

He said the donation was about $ 5,000 and that the district sent a letter of thanks to the company. Alexander said he would also like to publicly thank the company for this.

Alexandre also thanked the boss for his efforts, as well as the members of the department.

According to the Public Security Report, Conrad said that officer Brittany Gray recently completed her internship at the department and requested that she be removed from internship status and hired as a full-time officer. This was approved.

He also requested that Nicholas Runco be hired as a part-time meter inspection officer, which was also approved.
