“It’s my plea­sure on one hand and un­for­tu­nately on the other hand I have to an­nounce the re­tire­ment of Sgt. David Hendler,” Act­ing Po­lice Chief Alex Levy said. “vou’re a rock in the po­lice de­part­ment.”

Hendler started with the Up­per Moreland Po­lice De­part­ment in 1981. He was then pro­moted to the po­si­tion of sergeant in 1992.

“It’s go­ing to be dif­fi­cult to con­tinue on with­out you,” Levy said. “We’re go­ing to miss you.”

“We want to thank you for your years of ser­vice to the com­mu­nity,” board Pres­i­dent Sam Valenza said.
